Tour description

The early bird gets the worm. Today, that worm is a remarkable experience inside the Vatican Museums before it opens. Seize the day with a breakfast fit for the Pope in the verdant Pinecone Courtyard. Now energized and eager, meander through the expansive halls filled with masterworks to the stunning Sistine Chapel.

Start the day bright and early--and come hungry. At 7am, meet your licensed guide at the entrance to the Vatican Museums for your VIP entrance long before the crowds arrive. A bountiful breakfast buffet is served hot, ready to energize you for a phenomenal trip through centuries of art and legends.

Roam the expansive halls with your licensed guide, who shares tales of truth and legend. Take a privileged peek into the Cabinet of Masks--an area off-limits to the public. Explore the shifting terrains in the Gallery of Maps. Revel in folklore and history in the Gallery of Tapestries.

The ultimate work of Michelangelo is just ahead, its tall ceilings and spacious floor empty of crowds. Witness the Sistine Chapel in gloriously soft morning light, illuminating the symbolic figures and impeccable details in this work of grandeur and transcendence.

Take a reflective moment outside Saint Peter’s Basilica to contemplate the collections of historical art. Admire Bernini’s optically-symmetrical colonnade and the obelisk centered in front. The fruits of your envious experience at the Vatican are ripe and ready for taking.
