Before you reach the Sistine Chapel, Your guide will give you the inside scoop, about Michelangelo, some of the special characteristics about these paintings and what to look for while you are in there, because you are not allowed to talk inside of the Sistine Chapel, shhhhhh.
Once you have taken that beauty in, Your guide will take you through a secret door near by that leaves you out in front of St Peters. Here you will also skip the line to enter a truly living museum. Your guide will show you the highlights and explain the history behind the largest church in the world.
Here is where the tour ends but you can continue on exploring St. Peters on your own. You have the option to purchase tickets (at an added cost on site) to climb the dome or go underground to see the Vatican crypts.
Be prepared to be walking/standing for the length of the tour. You definitely want to wear your most comfortable shoes. The Vatican Museums are vast with some steps and stairways. If you are concerned about the intensity, contact us for more information, or choose the private option where you can go at your own pace.
Most activities are refundable as long as cancellations are made with more than 72 hours notice. There may be a transaction fee of 2.5% to process the refund. Some agencies have stricter policies, these policies will be presented during the booking process, BEFORE payment is requested. Spicy Meatball is very transparent in all of our transactions, feel free to contact our superhero customer support with any questions regarding these policies.
Vatican Tickets are purchased in the name of the guest and are not transferable so they are not refundable. In addition to the 2.5% transaction fee to process the refund, also the tickets (est. 17 euros per ticket) will not be included in the refunded amount.
During State visits or special religious events, parts of the Vatican may be closed unexpectedly. If an area normally covered on a tour is closed, your guide will still provide explanations of the closed areas from outside. Plus, show you an extra site or gallery to compensate.
St. Peter’s Basilica is an active church and can be closed unexpectedly for liturgical ceremonies. If closed, the time inside the Vatican Museums will be extended. On Wednesday mornings the Pope has his weekly audience in Saint Peter’s Square so for security reasons, Saint Peter’s Basilica is closed. If you book a tour on a Wednesday we can not guarantee access to the Basilica.
