Security: Due to increased security, some delays in entry are to be expected. We do in any case offer the quickest possibly entry.

St Peter's: On occasions when there is the Papal Audience (usually Wednesdays), the group may not enter the Basilica. Your guide will provide instructions on how to visit free of charge at a later time on your own.
Note: Tour not available on the 29th June for St Peter & St Paul feast day.
Please note: All participants should bring a copy of photo ID showing date of birth in case required by Vatican security. Although we pre-reserve your Vatican Museum tickets, there may be a short wait before museum entry while your guide collects your tickets and audiosets. Certain rooms or courtyards or even the Basilica may be closed without warning by the Museum administration. If this happens, some sites may be substituted. No backpacks allowed - entry & exit points are different & far from each other - no storage possibility. New Vatican regulations require all participant names in advance. Please list all names in your party in the Notes section of the booking. You will also need to have identification on the day in case requested. Failure to comply may result in refusal of entry by security. The Vatican offers a separate path for wheelchairs; as such, anyone with a wheelchair wishing to participate in the Vatican tour must have a private tour.
