Your tour begins at a designated meeting point near the Vatican, where you’ll greet your guide and enjoy a continental breakfast of croissants, coffee, and juice. When the Vatican opens its doors at 8am, you’ll be 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’ll 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.
