Your early morning Vatican tour with Breakfast in the Pinecone Courtyard!
Don’t miss the chance to visit the Sistine Chapel as a VIP, in a semi-private group of maximum10 people!
Step into the Vatican Museums before its official public opening time and enjoy the Sistine Chapel, because it will only open for you!
Discover the Vatican Museums with our exclusive and priority early entrance, which will let you admire the Sistine Chapel at its best, without the notoriously large crowds.
We are proudly back to featuring this special tour in our portfolio, as it is the best possible time of day to visit the Vatican museums without dealing with long queues and crowded spaces and allows you to wander around and stare at the artworks in complete silence and peace.
You will get up early in the morning, but when you’ll reach the Vatican area to join your small group and live this incredible experience, we guarantee you it will be worth it.
With our reserved early access to the Sistine Chapel, one hour before the official opening time, you’ll have the chance to admire Michelangelo’s masterpiece with few other very lucky people.
Did you know that no talking is allowed inside the Sistine Chapel, as silence is imposed by the sacredness of the place?
During public opening hours, during normal guided tours, not even guides are allowed to explain inside the Chapel. Panels have been placed along the route of the Vatican Museums to describe and explain the various frescoes present.
Yet, you will have the incredible, unique opportunity to hear the explanation of your guide right inside the Sistine Chapel!
Guided by a Vatican English-speaking and expert guide, sparks will fly at the view of the powerful frescoes of the Last Judgment, or the chapel’s ceiling. It goes without saying: we won’t miss out on the must-see attractions and areas, such as the Raphael Rooms, the School of Athens, but also the Upper Galleries (Candelabras, Geographical Maps, and Tapestries).
The magic is not yet over! Your expert guide will lead you to the beautiful Pinecone Courtyard, where you’ll enjoy an American-style breakfast surrounded by the very same environment that has been entertaining the popes for centuries.
Do you really dream of admiring the Sistine Chapel in an intimate and awesome atmosphere, living a true once-in-a-lifetime experience? Then you simply cannot miss this tour when in Rome!
