Early Morning Vatican Tours: Maximize your experience with entry before everyone else
If you are on holiday in Rome a visit to Vatican City is an essential stop. It goes without saying that whatever your religious beliefs, its artistic and architectural significance makes it one of the most awe-inspiring locations in the world. If you are spending a few days in the Eternal City, so rich in history, context, and symbolism, and intend to visit the Vatican, the best thing to do is to rely on the expertise of a seasoned tour guide. In addition to making the visit more enjoyable, you will better understand the meaning of each individual piece of work, its history, and what lies behind its creator. Furthermore, in places such as the Vatican Museums, which house millions of works of art, it is good to be accompanied by a specialized guide who will make sure not to miss the most important pieces.
If you want to fully enjoy the beauty of the Vatican within the intimacy of a private tour or small group tour, without crowds around and unnecessary queues, the only thing to do is to buy tickets that offer priority access. At the start of the day, not only will you avoid the heat, but you will have the chance to skip the crowds in the main museum galleries, to quietly visit St. Peter’s Basilica, and stop for a closer look at the Sistine Chapel. You can customize the morning exactly to your liking by choosing your itinerary or letting our expert English-speaking guide you through the highlights.
Exploring the wonders of the Eternal City’s epicenter
The capital of Italy is special, it embodies the roots of a once great and powerful empire, still witnessed today by the great monuments scattered around the city, beauties that leave out a majesty that echoes in the atmosphere. Moreover, it is the only city in the world to welcome another state within it: the Vatican City, the epicenter of Catholicism as well as an independent state under the sovereignty of the Pope.
By crossing the monumental St. Peter Square, surrounded by its imposing colonnade, one feels the sense of vastness that the history of the Vatican encompasses. From here you can access the symbolic building of Christianity, the majestic St. Peter’s Basilica, one of the emblems of the city of Rome, surmounted by the masterpiece that is Michelangelo’s Dome, highly recommended for climbing – even if the path is quite tiring if you want to do it on foot – to admire the magnificent panorama of Rome.
One thing not to be missed is a visit to the Vatican Museums. Considered among the most beautiful museums in the world, they consist of 14 small museums that house one of the largest collections of art, archaeology, and ethno-anthropology created by the Popes over the centuries, representing works and masterpieces of all eras coming from many countries.
There is a lot to see in the Vatican, you just need to want to be surprised and get organized. It is worth it!
