Stop At: St. Peter's Square

The tour ends in Saint Peter’s Square.  The perfect end to a wonderful two day tour of Rome. Because of the growing popularity of the current pope Francis and his intense activity in organising mass events in the Vatican some areas might get closed last minute without previous notice. This has already happened this year and can happen again during your Vatican tour: the Sistine chapel and/or the Basilica of Saint Peter might not be accessible. In case of such events our tour guide will provide you with a valuable alternative focusing the tour inside the Vatican museums.

Duration: 20 minutes
