Tour description

Enjoy the ultimate experience of being alone with Michelangelo’s masterpiece - the Sistine Chapel. Once the day's crowds have dispersed and the Vatican is shrouded in silence, you'll be left to appreciate this mesmerizing work of art in the intimacy of a small group. You and a maximum of 14 others will have complete run of the Vatican Museums. What's more, you'll be granted exclusive access to rooms that are normally kept closed to the public.  

Entering the Vatican Museums at 3:30pm, we'll be escorted by a Vatican guard to visit areas otherwise off-limits to the public. Your VIP access will allow you to view such marvels as Bramante's famous Spiral Staircase and the awe-inspiring Room of the Masks with the refined mosaics from Hadrian’s Villa in Tivoli.

Marvel at the stunning statues of Venus and the Three Graces and explore the Pope's private Niccolina Chapel. Your two-and-a-half hour two concludes at the apex of the Vatican's collection, the resplendent Sistine Chapel. Most visitors in Rome experience the Sistine Chapel when it's packed to capacity, but our Meeting Michelangelo tour lets you come face to face with his magnum opus, in the still serenity of the evening

Your passionate, professional guide will reveal all the secrets and symbols behind this world-defining artwork. And because you'll be in a small group, you'll have the personalized attention to ask any questions about the masterpiece that have been burning away in the back of your mind.
