Tour Description

Do you want to visit the Vatican with a private guide but don’t have hours to spend touring? Perhaps you are in Rome for a short time or feel like a hour Vatican tour is about all you want to see in one go! Luckily RPG has created an express private tour of the Vatican, to cover the very best of the Vatican in just 2 hours.

With the help of our fully licensed private guide, you will be able to accomplish the impossible: visiting all major Vatican highlights in just 2 hours! Book our Express private tour of the Vatican and our private guide will ensure you enjoy a quick yet fulfilling visit to the Vatican.

During your 2-hour Vatican tour you will enjoy an express visit through the Vatican Museums, stopping quickly at the main attractions in the galleries. You will be able to make the most of your time, because we will provide you with skip the line tickets. Is there a particular work of art you really don’t want to miss? Let our private guide know and you can be sure that you use your time in the way that you want, visiting what interests you and skipping what doesn’t.

Of course no 2-hour Vatican tour would be complete without the Sistine Chapel. Named after Pope Sixtus IV, who had it restored around 1480, the Sistine Chapel hosts two of the most valuable treasures of the Vatican: the ceiling and the Last Judgement by Michelangelo. If you are looking for a Sistine Chapel express private tour then you can walk directly through the Vatican Museums without stopping whilst your guide explains to you only the Sistine Chapel. Then you can spend the rest of your tour admiring this stunning masterpiece. This is a great option if you really want to tour the Sistine Chapel in depth. If you wish to customize your 2 hour Vatican tour in this way just let us know!

The last stop of your express private tour of the Vatican will be St Peter’s Basilica. One of the holiest sites in the world, you will be extremely glad you have a private guide by your side to talk you through its art and architecture.
