Description

Enter the Vatican museums at 730am, 90 minutes before doors open to the general public! This 2 hour guided experience is absolute artistic and architectural immersion inside the magnificent Sistine Chapel alongside far fewer people than one can expect later in the day (when it becomes somewhat oppressive), the major rooms and galleries of interest, plus a brief tour of St. Peter's Basilica. Explore the heritage of Rome and observe at close hand world famous paintings and sculptures inside the labyrinthine Vatican City with your expert guide, a professional art historian. You will bypass the crowds with skip-the-line priority access to St. Peter's Basilica. As a free bonus after your tour if you wish, you will have time to go back 2,000 years using props and backdrops in our Vatican office and photograph yourself and your companions dressed as gladiators and Roman soldiers! 

Meet your expert guide by our office in the early morning, just a few steps away from the Vatican Museums entrance. You will be escorted to the fast-track Vatican entry point and then head straight to the Sistine Chapel! Highlights along the way and a brief tour of St. Peter's Basilica thereafter make this tour top-rated! 

Get an undisturbed view of the pristine Sistine Chapel before the general public pour into the museums! Only very few exclusive tour operators possess this type of access to what is without any shadow of doubt the most important art collection in the world. While the museum spans over 1,200 rooms, your expert guide will cover the most important must-see masterpieces. Highlights include the rooms of Raphael as well as ancient Roman and Greek pieces in the Belvedere Courtyard, but the Sistine Chapel is paramount and we deliver!

Straight after seeing the Sistine Chapel you'll get direct access to St. Peter's Basilica, skipping the long lines and getting extra time - a privilege only made available on this particular tour. Explore the largest basilica in the world, built over what are believed to be the bones of St. Peter. Included therein are Michelangelo's serene  Pieta and grandiose dome as well as Bernini's massive Baldacchino (a bronze canopy over the altar), Raphael's  Transfiguration, and other monuments of great artistic importance. 

Back at our offices you can partake in an impromptu Gladiator Photoshoot using our props and costumes, and this is where you tour concludes.
