Step behind the scenes on an exclusive private tour of the Vatican and discover areas usually closed to the public.

Stroll through the tranquil, pristine gardens where Popes have meditated through the centuries. Explore the house of Pope Benedict XVI, see inside the Vatican’s own radio station, the Academy of Science and the former summer palace of the Popes. Marvel at Michelangelo’s breathtaking frescoes in the Sistine Chapel and wander around the ornate St Peter’s Basilica, which is by far the largest church in the world.

With free time to spend however you like, you could explore St Peter’s Square or settle in at a cosy café for lunch. Before leaving the Eternal City, a panoramic drive will reveal many more of Rome’s most magical monuments. Admire the sprawling Circus Maximus chariot racing stadium, the central hub of Venice Square and the towering Colosseum, where you’ll have the chance to stop for photos.
