What you'll do

This is a privilege group of 12 people in a 3-hour tour with no rush. With our PRIVATE ENTRANCE you'll be ahead of everyone. No-one else can use this entrance, ONLY US! As there is no wasting time in lines, we’ll see much more. With the extensive Vatican collection, this is necessary. Everyone wants to get to the SISTINE CHAPEL asap but because you're ahead of the crowds you can enjoy much better the Sistine Chapel, the Pinecone Courtyard, the amazing galleries and the Raphael Rooms. The only thing more fascinating than these rooms are the stories of the artists and popes which we will share. Curiosity is always encouraged. As your group will never have more than 12, we can be flexible. If that was not enough, you'll slip through another special access door into St. Peter's Basilica after. Underneath this incredible dome, we will show you more wonders like Bernini's bronze altar, Michelangelo's Pietá and the Holy Doors which only open every 25 years. PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR TOUR GIVES YOU SPECIAL ACCESS AVOIDING THE LONG QUEUES AND ROUTES ARE DESIGNED TO MINIMIZE EXPOSURE TO CROWDS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, BUT BE AWARE THAT THE VATICAN MUSEUMS ARE BUSY BY NATURE.
