Confused re Vatican Ticket Pricing & Question About Free St. Peter's Tour

Jump to last reply

(1) Would appreciate someone clearing this up for me. I've been emailing several tour companies for a private Tour of the Vatican for our small group. Every company has been telling me to purchase on my own the advance tix on the Vatican website.

When I go on the website, the pricing lookslike:

16 Euro (ticket for entry)
4 Euro (reservation fee)
1.5 Euro (headset rental)

But all the companies are telling me that the charge per person is 26 Euro for the Vatican. What am I missing? I am not going all the way to the payment page yet so is there VAT added to that pricing? Another service charge? A service charge for the headset rental?

(2) I read about N.A.C. offering a free short tour of St. Peter's at 2:15 p.m. Has anyone been on this tour? Is this still happening?

If this free tour is there, I'd much rather just go with the Vatican-led museum tour and leaving for the "free" St. Peter's tour.

The only reason why we're considering the private tour is because none of the "group" tour times offered by the "reputable" companies ranked well on Tripadvisor works with our schedule that day. Does anyone know of a group tour that starts at 2:00 p.m.?

Thanks!
