Overview

The Vatican? A Sistine Chapel tour without hoards of other people around you? Look no further! An earlier or more exclusive Vatican tour does not exist! Enjoy a cappuccino at our meeting point beside the Vatican City walls. As the clock chimes 730am, we make our way to the museum entrance. Your guide will prepare you for the majestic artwork inside the Sistine Chapel while you enter the Vatican one hour before the general public and go straight to Michelangelo's world famous ceiling!

Most visitors to the Vatican obsess over how to get close to the incredible frescos in the Sistine Chapel relatively unscathed, i.e. when there are no groups, no heaving crowds, no distractions. In reality, this scenario does not really exist unless one pays at least several hundred dollars or even several thousand dollars for the experience.

We have negotiated a window of opportunity with the Vatican to get our small group in on a budget well before the general public, so fast track access into the Sistine Chapel IS guaranteed. We bypass the minor galleries en route and INCLUDE St. Peter's Basilica!

Take your time, take some beautiful photos, and enjoy precious time in the most colourful, the most spectacular room in the World!

Museum doors open at 8am. Tour description commences in line pre-entrance inc. full explanation of the Sistine Chapel. You will be in the first 5 groups entering the museums. Approximately 300 groups enter the Vatican Museums every day. By the time you enter the Sistine Chapel, there will be approximately 50 people inside too.
