Itinerary

Visiting the Vatican Museums is a dream come true for millions of travelers that every year have the amazing chance to step into the wonderful corridors and breathe in the magical atmosphere created by the sumptuous frescoes, the stunning statues and the iconic tapestries that make up just a tiny part of what this art complex offers to the public.

So imagine having the possibility to visit all of its rooms, galleries and – of course – the Sistine Chapel, after the closing time, to enjoy moments of pure relaxation and art with your expert guide and a semi-private group of maximum 10 people.

We’ve got you hooked, haven’t we?

Not only will you be able to access the Sistine Chapel as a VIP, but we have gone further and included a typical Italian aperitif tasting in a magical setting, inside the museum!

You will be the first into the Sistine Chapel after its general public closing time: this will allow you to discover the Vatican Museums without stress or haste, also enjoying our exclusive partners’ entrance.

To make this even more comfortable and magical, we have included the hotel pick-up from your central accommodation in Rome: all you have to do is waiting for our driver to come pick you up and take you to the Vatican area, where you will join your guide and small group and start this incredible experience.

The guide will lead you along the Pio Clementino Museum, the Upper Galleries (Candelabras, Geographical Maps, and Tapestries) and the amazing Raphael’s Rooms; Michelangelo's timeless masterpiece will await you in the Sistine Chapel.

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!

After walking around, taking lots of photos and selfies and listening to the explanation of your guide, we thought of including a typical Italian-style Happy Hour in the Pinecone Courtyard, that same magical setting that has filled the hearts and souls of popes for centuries!

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit one of the most famous and crowded art complexes in the world in a totally harmonious and intimate way and we are every step of the way to make sure the memory of it will last a lifetime.
