The popularity of the Vatican, one of Europe’s most iconic landmarks, is reflected by the long lines it attracts. Save time, avoid lines, and enjoy the Vatican in relative solitude on a private 3.5-hour tour including early access. At 7:30am — 1.5 hours prior to the Vatican’s official opening time — you’ll take a tour of the museum, home to the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms, and the Gallery of Tapestries. Plus, see restricted areas of the Cabinet of Masks.
  • Private 3.5-hour tour of the Vatican including early access
  • Bypass long lines and enter the Vatican 1.5 hours before it officially opens to the public
  • Take crowd-free photographs of the Sistine Chapel and Raphael's Rooms
  • Enjoy access to the Cabinet of Masks, usually restricted to the public
Greet your private guide outside the entrance of the Vatican Museum on Viale Vaticano at 7:30am. On entry, you’ll bypass lines often in advance of three hours and head straight inside the museum 1.5 hours in advance of the general public.
Alongside your guide, you’ll explore the complex at your own pace and have the pleasure of capturing crowd-free photos of the Sistine Chapel and Raphael’s Rooms.
See, too, the Gallery of the Candelabra, home to Roman copies of Hellenistic originals and the Gallery of Maps, covered with stunning frescoes of topographical maps.
Plus, you’ll have an exclusive opportunity to visit the Cabinet of the Masks, home to mosaics and sculptures rescued from Hadrian’s Villa in Tivoli. Your tour culminates with a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica, which you’ll access through a secret passageway.
Your tour concludes at your original meeting point.
