  4. 4. This will happen once before the Sistine Chapel and again beforevisiting St. Peter’s Basilica.• Unfortunately, this route is the only way for disabled tourists to visit the Vatican on a group tour.• If you would like to stay with the tour guide at all times, we recommend a Vatican wheelchair accessible private tour.

Accessibility Description• During this Vatican wheelchair accessible tour, disabled visitors will enter the Vatican museums by using an elevator and a ramp.• After visiting the Vatican museums, the disabled visitor and one companion will be able to take an alternate route to avoid the stairs on the normal route leading to the Sistine Chapel.• These two people will be able to meet back up with your guide before using an elevator and a wheelchair lift to obtain disabled access to the Sistine Chapel.
  13. 13. After visiting the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, most tourgroup participants take a shortcut through a staircase to reachSt. Peter’s Basilica.• Disabled visitors who can not go down a flight of stairs will have to take the long route back to the Vatican Museums entrance then follow a 500 meter route outside of the Vatican city walls to reach the accessible entrance of St. Peter’s basilica.• You will be separated from the tour guide for about 30 minutes.• For this reason, we recommend the private Vatican accessible tour as the best option.
