For those attending Vatican tours is important to know that entry to the Museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica is permitted only to appropriately dressed visitors. The dress code for visiting the Vatican is the same that applies when you enter any church in Italy. As a sign of respect, both women and man must cover shoulders and knees with appropriate clothing. Low cut or sleeveless clothing, shorts, miniskirts, and hats are not allowed. The Pope’s Museums draws upwards of 35,000 visitors per day in high season. It is hardly surprising. They are home to the Sistine Chapel and some of the greatest finds from the ancient world.

Phillipe was fantastic, he was knowledgeable, interesting and gave us just the right amount of information. He is a great person to having doing the tours for you and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. Doing a private tour is the only way to do it. The queue was enormous and we just by-passed everyone and went straight through and then had the added luxury of being able to stop and ask questions about what we saw whenever we wanted to and had the full attention of a brilliant guide. Overall a great experience.
We loved our tour! Our tour guide was amazing!! She was so knowledgeable and was great with my nine year old son. I found your tour online through a blog about Italy with kids. I would absolutely recommend it to all my friends!!
