your experience

On this VIP Vatican Tour, you will enter the vaunted halls of the Museums before the doors are open to the public at 8:30am. Put yourself in the shoes of Pope and experience the Vatican as he does. Roam through the nearly empty hallways, winding corridors, and massive chapels with a small group that lets you completely soak in the peace and tranquility of the prestigious site.

Follow your expert guide as he leads you through the vast array of works and important masterpieces collected by the Catholic Church and the papacy throughout the centuries. Without a guide, you will find the complex a bit difficult to navigate, but your guide will take you through a curated route that allows you to navigate easily and see the best the Museum and the Sistine Chapel have to offer. These include a number of stunning sculptures and paintings from some of the greatest artists of the Renaissance era, such as Raphael, Bernini, Caravaggio and Leonardo da Vinci. Of course, you will see the renowned ceiling fresco of Michelangelo, one of the most fundamental works of High Renaissance Art.
