Meet your guide at 7:30am near the entrance of the Vatican Museums to begin your private tour. You'll gain entry into the vast museum at 8:00am, a full hour before the doors open to the general public, giving you a unique opportunity to see the incredible collections without the typical crowds.
Listen as your guide explains the history of the Vatican, including the Vatican Museums. See all the highlights of the collections, plus the Cabinet of Masks. This gallery has gorgeous Roman mosaics on the floor and beautiful statues lining the halls, and it is usually closed to the public.
Finish your Vatican Museums visit with a stop in the exquisite Sistine Chapel, decorated with Michelangelo's famous frescoes. Follow your guide through a skip-the-line walkway between the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica to tour the enormous church. The tour ends in St. Peter's Basilica.
