Why Choose It?
- Save time: enter the Sistine Chapel with privileged entry tickets.
- Maximize your experience with entry up to 1-hour before everyone else.
- Enjoy personalized attention within the intimacy of a private group.
- Discover Michelangelo's masterpieces without the crowds
Be the first to step inside the Sistine Chapel through our prime Sistine Chapel & Vatican tour.
This private 3 or 4–hour tour takes you through the vast collections of the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums, honing in on the highlights. Utilizing priority, skip-the-line entrance to the Vatican before it opens to the public, be the first inside the Sistine Chapel where you’ll enjoy a fascinating, in-depth explanation of Michelangelo’s masterpiece. Then explore the highlights of the Vatican Museums before concluding the tour either in St. Peter’s Square or St. Peter’s Basilica.
Experience having the Sistine Chapel almost entirely to yourself
Most consider the Sistine Chapel the highlight of their private Vatican tour. When experienced in near silence, without the hundreds of tourists who crowd it every day, it really is a sight to behold. Savor this sacred moment as you marvel at Michelangelo’s epic Last Judgement and glorious Creation of Adam.
An expert in art history and specialist in the Vatican’s collection, your guide will provide all the context you need to fully appreciate these seminal pieces in western art. Michelangelo was as prolific as he was brilliant and can be credited with contributing many things to the city of Rome – including the Dome of Saint Peter’s Basilica. Stand in the Sistine Chapel, however, and you’ll likely agree that this was his magnum opus.
Visit the highlights of the Vatican Museums
The Vatican Museums’ Gallery of Maps displays another stunning collection. Its impossibly ornate golden ceilings shine ever brighter when there are no crowds below. Learn all about how those before us understood their world as your guide deciphers the maps and symbols painted onto the walls.
Your private Vatican and Sistine Chapel tour makes another stop at the Gallery of Tapestries. So impossibly intricate are the tapestries’ Flemish designs that it’s difficult to believe they were woven by hand. Each tapestry tells a story – from biblical episodes to the assassination of Caesar – which your guide will bring to life.
Because the Vatican Museums are amongst the largest in the world, visiting them without a guide can be daunting. Going on a private Vatican tour means you can ensure your Vatican experience will be as enriching and efficient as possible, as your expert guide picks out the right highlights for you. If there’s something in particular you would like to see or something you want to know more about, you can always personalize your tour to dig deeper into the Vatican’s history.
As you make your way through the Vatican Museums, you’ll encounter the busts of the Roman emperors who shaped the Eternal City and statues of the Greco-Roman gods they worshipped. Many reside within the stunning Gallery of the Candelabra, but we’ll take you deeper, nourishing your knowledge with art, history, and even space.

It was a very hot summer day and she always looks for ways to give us the information under the shade before we went into the sun. I highly recommend this company and Martha as well. It was very easy to make the reservation and pay. We took the private tour and was perfect. 3 hours that feel like Half hour . We didn’t do any limes to get into the places. Know that if you go by yourself or in other yours you could be up to 2 hours under the sun to get into the coliseum or forum. I highly recommend the private tour. read less - 8/05/2022

This year we chose the Appian Way bike tour and the three pastas of Rome cooking class. Both of them were unforgettable!
First, the bike tour. I am a klutz, and the last time I was on a bike I had such a bad crash I never thought I’d do it again, but this was something my husband had wanted to do for a long time, so I nervously agreed. Our guid, Fabrizio, was amazing. He was patient with me and before long the beauty and aromas of the Via Appia Antica melted my fear. We got to experience the city I love so dearly I. A unique way, get some exercise, and learn so much about the city’s history. I absolutely recommend this experience, and we’re thankful we had Fabrizio as our guide. He was great!
That evening we got to celebrate my survival with the cooking class! Davide was our chef and he too was outstanding! Caccio e pepe, carbonara, and amatriciana are the three pastas. The class was wonderful. We were welcomed with Prosecco and a selection of cheeses, meats and olives. I’m a vegetarian but wanted to learn to make everything and was planning to just eat the caccio e pepe, but Davide grabbed some extra tomatoes and we made a pomodoro sauce that’s the best I’ve ever had just a wonderful experience! The location is beautiful, which adds to the ambience. Amazing as always, WIR! read less - 6/24/2022
