Tour description

This exceptional private tour of the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums allows you to enter one and a half hours before the general opening hour at 7:30am sharp. Such exclusivity is due to our special collaboration with the Vatican Museums. For your incredible Vatican experience, the doors are opened early in your honor. Our tour grants you VIP access without waiting in line, the only real chance to skip the lines and crowds.

Due to our valued partnership with the Vatican Museums, you will be the first to enter the Sistine Chapel. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to beat the crowds and enjoy Michelangelo’s masterpiece at a solitary hour.

An in depth 3.5 hour private tour beginning in the mighty Sistine Chapel without the burden of the later crowds. Savour this sacred moment to marvel at the epic Last Judgement and glorious Creation of Adam in peace. Our special Vatican partnership also gains you access to the private Cabinate of Masks, usually closed to the general public.

The Vatican Museums are amongst the largest in the world. The privilege of a private tour is that you are welcome to specify if there is something in particular you would like to see. Alternatively, entrust your licensed guide to ensure your Vatican experience is the most enrinching and efficient possible. There will be the chance to see the ravishing Greek and Roman statues as well as masterpieces by Michelagnelo, Raphael, Bernini and more.   

As only a licensed guide can do, you will be navigated through the special skip-the-line secret passage to St. Peter’s Basilica. The magnificent dome, Bernini’s Baldacchino and Michelangelo’s Pieta make for a fitting climax to this extraordinary cultural feast.

This tour concludes in Saint Peter’s Square admiring the astonishing colonnade by Bernini.
