Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and Basilica of Saint Peter

The Vatican City State is one of the most visited touristic site in the world. Visitors from all over the world come here to visit two sites: the Vatican Museums (with the Sistine Chapel) and the Basilica of Saint Peter. In this tour, you’ll visit both, in company of an official guide.
The Museums are gigantic: it would take you a lifetime to explore the collection in full.
I’ve been working as an official tour guide of the Museums since 2009, so I’m very experienced about this specific itinerary.
My selection is based on my experience of archaeologist and 10 years of private tours in the Vatican City: first the Museums, then the Sistine Chapel, at the end of the tour, we’ll visit the majestic Papal Basilica of Saint Peter.

Admission tickets are so requested that I need to buy them 2 months before the tour date.
So the Vatican may be sold out for the date/time chosen.
