What to expect

Enjoy the masterpieces of the Vatican Museums in absolute calm and peace without the stress of long lines and huge crowds. Visit the site early in the morning and take in the beauty of the magnificently adorned halls without the noise of hundreds of tourists.

After being picked up from your accommodation, you'll get to skip the long lines with your early morning admission ticket and access directly the metal detector control. You'll begin your experience from the gorgeous panoramic terrace that offers a stunning view of St. Peter’s dome overlooking the Vatican Gardens; the perfect spot to take a great picture!

Your guide will then walk you through all the main highlights of the museums: the Pio Clementino Museum, famous for its unique Greek and Roman statues such as the Laocoon group, the enormous Tapestry Hall and finally the Sistine Chapel whose impact in history, religion and visual arts has no equal in the world.

At the end of your tour, you'll reach the most important Catholic Church in the world: St. Peter’s Basilica. Once you enter you'll be overwhelmed by the astonishing details and the quantity of beautiful art that surrounds you. This is where Michelangelo’s sculpture Pietà is kept and the tombs of the popes including St. John Paul II’s and St. Peter the Apostle.
