Our Private Early Morning Vatican Tour offers a uniquely personal experience of the Vatican.
The privilege of having a guide to yourselves is that you can customize the tour: there is the opportunity to discover all aspects of the Vatican city: the Renassaince and it’s masterpeices by Botticelli or Perugino, the Papacy and it’s Popes or antiquity statues and mosaics from the Roman Empire.
With the advantage of our Special Early Morning tickets you will avoid the crowds and enjoy the museums at a more solitary and reflective hour. Take the chance to relish the beauty of Michelangelo’s masterpieces, The Creation and The Last Judgement, as they should be- in peace. Make an exclusive visit to the Cabinet of Masks, rarely seen by members of the public as it is closed during general hours, and only accessible to us through our support of important Vatican projects developed by the Vatican museums. These precious rooms contain mosaics taken from Hardrian’s Villa as well as remarkable Roman statues seldom seen by public eyes.
Other highlights include marveling at the optical illusions in the Gallery of Maps and the intricate details that make up the enormous tapestries on the way to the Sistine Chapel. Throughout your Vatican odyssey your engaging guide will share with you the secrets and incredible stories of the Vatican and those who have contributed to the most infamous museums in the world.
The tour will conclude in St Peter’s Basilica to admire Michelangelo’s Pietà. With our private guide you are able to access the Basilica straight from the museums avoiding the huge lines.
This exceptional tour is “one of the best experiences in Rome” and a great introduction to the Vatican.
