About this activity
Meet your guide at their local office near the Vatican at your selected time. Do not miss one of Rome's most important highlights - the Vatican Museums. Treat yourself to a bespoke private tour with a professional tour guide who will make your Roman experience unforgettable. Enjoy visiting the Vatican museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica without standing in lines.

Choose the exclusive 8am tour (meeting time at 7:30am) for a privileged VIP entrance one hour before the museum opens its doors officially, a regular day time tour that may suit your needs or our brand new evening Vatican tour with really few people inside the museum.

Let your personal guide show you the wonders of the Vatican collection including Michelangelo's and Raphael's masterpieces and discover the stories behind the Vatican walls.

• Start your tour by meeting your guide at our licensed office, and you will then be escorted to the Vatican Museums entrance (only 383 yards/350m). After going through security at the entrance, you will embark on a journey through the ages and experience one of the most famous museums in the world!
• You will be shown through the museums and galleries, and are able to take your time, ask your guide any questions you may have, during which you will also be shown the Cabinet of the Masks and Raphael Rooms. End your visit of the museums in the Sistine chapel and witness Michelangelo's spectacular masterpiece. If you choose the early morning option, you will be quickly escorted through the museums to the Sistine Chapel before visiting the museums - you will then see it before the crowds reach it. During day time tours you will see the Sistine chapel after the tour of the museums.
• Lastly, you will be taken to the secret entrance of St. Peter’s Basilica. which is only accessible from within the Vatican Museums - and again, skip-the-line to this extraordinary church, where you will have another guided tour. The tour of St. Peter's Basilica is only available when the Basilica is open and in case it is not, it is replaced by Pinacoteca. The Basilica is not part of night time tours, as already closed.
