This tour ends at St. Peter's Basilica from where you will be free to explore other areas of Vatican City on your own, or spend more time inside of the Basilica.
*Please note: Tours departing on Wednesdays do not visit the inside of St. Peter's Basilica due to the weekly Papal Audience. It is also possible that due to Papal events, some planned in advance and some at the last minute, that access to St. Peter's Basilica from the Vatican Museums will be closed or that the Basilica will be completely closed off to the public. In these cases, we will do our best to inform guests ahead of time and provide alternatives. This is not always possible, however, and in the case of a last minute interruption, extra time will be spent exploring the Vatican Museums. In such cases, no partial refunds will be provided.
