One of our most popular Accessible Tours is our Vatican tour. You’ll join your expert guide for a full tour of all the Vatican’s highlights. This itinerary has been specifically modified in order to best accommodate those with access requirements.
First, you’ll visit the Vatican Museums. In there you’ll see some of the best artwork that European civilization has ever produced, including the spectacular Raphael Rooms, decorated in frescoes by the Great Master. You’ll see the spectacular School of Athens – perhaps the height of Raphael’s achievement. You’ll also discover the charming Gallery of Maps; an unusual corridor of maps of the Italian peninsula which has become a highlight.
Next, you’ll ascend an elevator to enter the Sistine Chapel. There you’ll get to discover Michelangelo’s greatest achievement; his Last Judgement and Sistine Chapel ceiling. Admire the carefully crafted scenes from the Old Testament on the ceiling; among them, the iconic Creation of Adam. A visit to the Sistine Chapel is a remarkable experience – one which we leave you forever enamored with Michelangelo’s most triumphant work.
Finally, you’ll head to St Peter’s Basilica. Once there, you’ll skip the line to the Basilica and enjoy a full tour of its triumphant interior. Discover this remarkable feat of architecture and the seat of the Catholic Church. Some of the world’s greatest architects and artists – including Bernini, Bramante, Michelangelo and Raphael – played their part in making St Peter’s Basilica the achievement it so clearly is.
Once your tour has finished, you’ll be collected in a private car with AC and taken back to your hotel. Wave your guide goodbye and rest safe in the knowledge you’ve just enjoyed a complete experience of the Vatican
