Your early-morning excursion begins just across the street from the Vatican Museum at Café Vaticano, where you’ll meet your guide. The tour—limited to just six people—is held before the Sistine Chapel opens to the public, and these privileges mean you’ll have plenty of time to discover the masterpiece in a peaceful, uncrowded setting.
Once inside, your guide will provide an informative introduction to the Sistine Chapel, including stories, facts about its creation, and interesting details hidden in this extraordinary work of art.
Then, follow your guide to St. Peter’s Basilica, one of the world’s largest churches, just steps away. Listen as your guide provides an introduction to the landmark and shares tips and stories before leaving you at your leisure to explore. The tour concludes in the morning, making it a simple and stress-free way to begin a day of sightseeing in the Vatican City and Rome.
