This tour allows you to enjoy the greatest masterpieces of the Vatican like Michelangelo’s “The Last Judgment” and Raphael’s “School of Athens”, with a few other lucky ones! You will be among the first visitors to enter the Vatican Museums early in the morning before opening hours to the public. This an exclusive experience not to be missed. You will be able to admire the magnificent frescoes of the Sistine Chapel with other 35-40 people inside and sometimes even fewer.

The main difference between this tour and the “Early Morning Vatican” tour is that here you will have only 2% of the usual crowds inside, instead of 10%. You will enter the museums at 7:30 am instead of 8:00 am, which will give you a 30-minute advantage time on the other visitors.

After the complimentary pick-up from your accommodation, you will meet your private guide in front of the Vatican entrance, and with your special early morning admission ticket, you will walk through the dedicated lane and enter the empty museums. The tour will begin on a gorgeous panoramic terrace that offers a stunning view of St. Peter’s dome overlooking the Vatican Gardens. Your guide will then walk you through all the highlights of the museums which include masterpieces and artifacts from different cultures and civilizations.

You will visit the Pio Clementine museum, and you will gasp at the length of the enormous Tapestry Hall, then, through the Hall of the painted maps, you will enter the Sistine Chapel whose impact on history, religion, and visual arts has no equal in the world.
