How many people are on tour?


The size of the group will depend on the tour. Most Vatican walking tours have a maximum of 15-20 travellers. Tours that include coach transport will usually be larger, but will often be spilt up for walking tour components based on language. You can contact us if you have any questions regarding group sizes for specific tours.


Can you arrange a tour to somewhere not mentioned on your website?


We can arrange private Vatican tours to just about anywhere! Just contact us with your request, number of travellers and dates of travel and we will arrange a quote.


Will there be a break on the tour?


We always schedule one or more breaks, depending on the length of the tour. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to make an unscheduled break on shared tours, but do chat with your guide if you have an emergency.


Do you cater for dietary requirements?


Where food is included in the tour, most dietary requirements can be accommodated if you let us know prior to your tour. Please include any dietary requirements in the notes when you book or speak to one of our friendly staff before you make your reservations.


Can I take photos?


Yes, photos are permitted at most locations. However, bulky equipment, large bags, tripods and flash photography are not permitted.


Why are there still queues even though we have Skip the Line tickets?


Because of security regulations at some locations (including the Colosseum and the Vatican), bags are subject to inspection by a metal detector and this can cause delays regardless of the ticket. Large bags, suitcases and backpacks may be refused entry and we recommend you leave these at home.


Are tours in English?


All our shared tours are conducted in English, unless otherwise stated. It may be possible to organise a private tour in your language. Please contact us if you wish to organise a private Vatican tour.


What should I wear?


We recommend wearing comfortable, weather appropriate clothes, including a hat for outdoor tours. Most Vatican tours involve walking, so comfortable shoes are recommended. Some locations, especially places of worship including the Vatican Museums, require visitors to adhere to a dress code. Clothing that covers your knees and shoulders is essential for tours to these destinations.


I know large bags aren't permitted in the Colosseum, but how big is too big?


Unfortunately, there is no standard size for bags in the Colosseum and it is totally at the discretion of the security personnel to refuse entry. If you must bring a bag, we therefore recommend you bring the smallest bag you have and leave any large bags behind.
