Vatican & Vatacombs – Shared Tour is a flagship group Vatican tour which includes Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, special access to “Vatacombs”, the underground tombs of former Popes, and St. Peter’s Basilica in about three hours.
What does ‘shared’ mean?
Your party will not have a dedicated private guide but you’ll share a guide with others.
This means that when you reach some of the attractions, you’ll join a group of other visitors. These may not have booked with us but don’t worry, your spot is reserved and you don’t have to wait in line. You’ll only have to either show the voucher or tell the ticket desk your name. The group you’ll join can be up to 30 people but not larger than that.
