Our private, brand new minivan will wait for you just in front of your cruise terminal, arriving at St. Peter’s at 11:00 am, leaving you the entire day to walk around and explore. You’ll be whisked to the front of the line so you won’t be wasting one second of your time.

From there, you can go inside the Basilica, one of Catholicism’s holiest sites and see the final resting place of St. Peter’s tomb. Vatican City is also home to Pope Francis, who presides over a number of services throughout the year in both the church and surrounding square to tens of thousands of people. While we can’t guarantee your visit will include a sighting of The Pope, you will be able to visit the Sistine Chapel, his official residence; the ceiling of course is adorned with one of Michelangelo’s most iconic masterpieces.

Hundreds of other important works from Renaissance artists are also located here, including sculptures and paintings from Raphael, da Vinci, Titian, and Caravaggio. There are a total of 54 galleries in the Vatican Museum, so you certainly won’t run out of things to see! For an extra fee, you can purchase a guided tour of the museum and Basilica, available in many different languages (including English, of course). Should you wish, you will have plenty of time to step outside the Vatican walls and take in the sites of Rome. Visit the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and perhaps the Coliseum.

Finally, exhausted from your visit, the minivan will pick you up at 4:00 pm and you can take a nap while we safely return you to your ship by 5:30 pm.
