Stroll through the Vatican Gardens accompanied by an official Vatican guide!

Created in 1279, the Vatican Gardens now occupy over half of the total surface of the world’s smallest state!

During your 2-hour tour, your guide will lead you through the gardens showing you the different fountains, sculptures and works of art hidden within this oasis at the heart of the Holy See.

After your tour, you can continue to explore the Vatican thanks to your fast-track entry ticket for the museums and the Sistine Chapel.
