The Vatican can be difficult to explore as it is constantly packed with visitors. This VIP Tour offers special morning access to the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica, allowing you to experience these glorious spaces without the stress of enormous crowds. You won’t regret this investment in exclusivity!

The 110 acres that comprise the Vatican City are home to some of the most famous tourist destinations in the world. The global center of the Catholic religion attracts millions of fervent religious supporters and interested visitors each year. As you pass the famed Pontifical Swiss Guard, the Pope’s security force since 1505, you’ll enter perhaps the most recognizable plaza in the Western world: St. Peter’s Square.

Given the Vatican’s importance as a religious and historical destination, it’s no surprise that it is consistently brimming with tourists. Attractions like the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel regularly have long lines for entrance, and papal addresses are heard by thousands of people beneath the window of the Apostolic Palace.

By arranging for special access to Vatican facilities beginning at 7:30AM, we are able to offer a VIP experience that allows you to see the majesty of the Vatican before the daily crush of tourists.

Throughout history, wealthy and famous visitors have presented the Popes with some of the most important works of art in Western history. These include multiple sculpture museums with special galleries dedicated to statues, busts, and masks. Even more impressive is the collection of paintings with works by da Vinci, Bellini, Titian, and a suite of rooms dedicated to the frescoes of Raphael.

Thoroughly educated in the history of these masterpieces, our guides will take you on an intimate tour of the Vatican Museums, leading you directly to the most consequential works and offering valuable information along the way.
