How to get Vatican City tickets and tours

If you're visiting Rome, one place you can not leave out of your must-visit list is Vatican City. During your visit to the Vatican, you'll have a chance to relive the history through the extensive art collection inside the Vatican Museums. Those galleries are considered to be some of the most important galleries globally. Every year, over 4 million visitors visit the Vatican Museums for its unique charm, making it one of the most popular tourist sites in Rome. The complex began in the early 16th century as a place where statues of Pope Julius II could be set.

Today, the galleries house an extensive collection of artworks collected over the times by the Roman Catholic Church. The tour of the Vatican deals and packages are widely available. They are the best way to visit the papacy.

You should not miss visiting the Sistine Chapel

The galleries also feature works by famous Renassaince artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael. The Sistine Chapel is another Vatican attraction that shouldn't miss out on visiting. The ceiling was painted by the famous artist Michelangelo. The majestic walls were decorated by well-known Renaissance artists similar to Botticelli and Raphael.

When you are in Rome, there are places you cannot miss. One of them is undoubtfully the Vatican. Considered the smallest country globally, the Vatican has numerous special collections of art, artifacts, and sculptures. That tells stories about the origins and struggles of Roman Catholicism and how this religion helped shape the world.

Two types of Vatican tours

There are different types of Vatican tours. You can generally choose between private and group tours of the Vatican. Private tours are for you and your party only. You'll have the honor of visiting the Vatican with your private Vatican Tour Guide. Who is devoted simply to you and will show you the Vatican's treasures from an inside perspective.

Meanwhile, the Vatican Group Tours include small groups of people who made reservations on the same day. This is ideal if you're traveling to the Vatican alone. It will be great to get a tour of St Peter's Basilica if you want to enjoy exploring the most famous catholic church in the world.
