Vatican Museums Private Tour
Visiting the Vatican Museums with a private tour allows the visitor an exclusive experience organized on their own requests and curiosities.
The Vatican Museums Private Tour takes about three hours, but if you include the tour of the Basilica of St. Peter, the visit can last up to 4 hours. The departure time of the tour is chosen by the visitor, ranging from the opening hours of Museums (about at 9:00 am) to the last available entrance (at 3:30 pm, closing at 6:00 pm Museums). In the event that the tour includes the Basilica of St. Peter (last stop of the visit), one must remember that from 4:00 pm onwards it is no longer possible to speak in the church, since the religious services begin, so you can access and visit it, but the guide may not carry out the explanation. For this reason it is recommended to estimate the entrance to the basilica at around 3:00 pm.

Usually the tourists meet their guide outside the Museums, in an easily recognizable and accessible location noted on the voucher (document that is sent having booked the tour, which contains all the information regarding the service purchased). In order to be recognized, the guide will have an object or distinctive clothing such as a T-shirt, an umbrella, a scarf of a particular color or, as happens in most cases, a sign with the name of the customers.
To gain access to museums, you need to collect your entry tickets, your guide will take care of this submitting your customer voucher at the special counter, with the reservation, the visitor has the opportunity to enter the Vatican Museums without having to queue for the ticket.
The itinerary followed during a Private Tour is usually proposed by the guide, and includes the areas of most interest of the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica, if included in the tour; but you can request a more specific itinerary according to your preferences.
