Raf was the best. Her presentation was so informative and passionate and fun. Just the right size group—not too big. I will definitely recommend The Roman Guy tours.
The wait times for the Vatican Museums are testament to its status as one of the world’s most well-known monuments. Beat the crowds and enter the Vatican an hour before it officially opens to the public on this early access tour, guaranteed to save you at least three hours of waiting. Explore the Sistine Chapel and Raphael's Rooms in a relatively crowd-free environment, and hear your guide's commentary clearly through a headset. Entry to St. Peter’s Basilica is also included.
Your Vatican tour begins in the early morning. Greet your guide at a designated meeting point, and enter the Vatican through an entrance reserved specially for priority access groups.
Feel like you have the place to yourself as you visit highlights such as Raphael's Rooms, the Gallery of Maps, and the Sistine Chapel, adorned with Michelangelo's world-famous frescoes.
Listen to the history of the Vatican and its numerous Popes before heading into St. Peter’s Basilica for a small-group tour. After bidding your guide farewell, you can continue exploring the church independently if you wish.

Our guide was Lucia - very smart, very competent, full of historical knowledge that she blended with the noted "stories" that follow religions. My daughter and I loved being a part of her tour - were we to do it again, we'd figure out how...More
