Your tour begins at a designated meeting point near the Vatican, where you greet your guide and enjoy a continental breakfast of croissants, coffee, and juice. When the Vatican opens its doors, you’re one of the first to enter with a skip-the-line admission ticket.

Once inside, head straight to the Sistine Chapel and admire Michelangelo’s world-famous frescoes without having to battle crowds. You only have to share the space with a fraction of the visitors who arrive later on.

Alongside your guide, admire art in some of the Vatican’s 1,400 rooms and learn little-known information you may otherwise have missed. After you’ve seen the Gallery of Maps and Raphael’s Rooms, enter St. Peter’s Basilica through a reserved groups-only entrance and take a guided tour. After bidding your guide farewell, you’re free to continue exploring the space independently.

    We just wanted to thank your company, and especially our tour guide Giuliano for the incredible tour. We chose this early morning 3.5 hour vatican tour and could not have been happier with our selection. The opportunity to be in such an incredible place before all of the crowds made the early morning wake-up more than worth it. Our tour guide, Giuliano, was incredibly knowledgable and made sure our small group was able to see and learn every detail. We learned so much about this special place and will cherish these memories for years to come! Thank you for arranging an incredible tour and special thanks to Giuliano for being such a knowledgable, professional, and friendly guide!
