Price include two people. This Early Morning Vatican private tour lets you explore the beautiful art history jealously preserved in the Vatican museums. In this marvelous place will admire an incredible art collection composed by art pieces made in the most ancient times, Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque. The tour takes you to the Raphael Rooms – a place not really appreciated by the general public, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church ever built. Skip the line included.

We will meet VEEEERY early (7.15 AM) to leave the meeting point at 7.30. We will head towards the entrance to the Vatican Museums and while in line, waiting for the gates to open (at 8.00 AM) we will talk and describe the Sistine Chapel with the support of visive material (talking is NOT permitted inside the Chapel). At 8 we will enter, get tickets and start our tour from a very exclusive room: The Cabinet of Masks, which is restricted to general public, only very few official partners of the Vatican can be granted the privilege of visiting this area. We will continue our visit in an almost empty museum and, while most groups will race forward to reach the Sistine Chapel, we will explore the empty rooms before the museums open to general public: the Pio Clementino museum, the hall of tapestries, the hall of maps, then finally the Sistine Chapel. Now the museums will open to general public and before the crowds will reach the Chapel painted by Michelangelo, we will head towards St Peter’s Basilica (unless it is closed due to religious services), probably the most incredible temple of Christianity in the world. The experience will end in front of the church.
