Overview
The Vatican Museums are among the most visited museums in the world, so it’s no surprise that it can get crowded. This 3-hour early bird tour lets you visit the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica before the crowds arrive, with skip-the-line entrance and a small group of up to 12 people.
What to Expect

The Must See Sites of the Vatican Museums:

Once inside, you will visit the Vatican Museum’s most important sites. Your expert English speaking tour guide will provide plenty of explanations and fun facts as you stroll by the most important pieces of the Vatican collection: from the famous Raphael Rooms to the Gallery of the Tapestries and the Maps, all the way to the Sistine Chapel where you will finally admire Michelangelo’s amazing frescoes.

Skip St. Peter's Basilica’s Long Lines:

From the Sistine Chapel we will go directly into the St. Peter’s Basilica by using a special access and therefore skipping once again the long lines. Our guided tour continues inside the world’s most amazing and decorated church, where you will be amazed by Michelangelo’s famous Pieta. Then, standing in awe under the massive dome and gazing upon Bernini’s celebrated canopy, you will learn about the Basilica’s many secrets and stories.
