Enter the Vatican Museums and see the Sistine Chapel before the general public! Those willing to get up early and arrive in time for early bird check-in will enjoy the Vatican without the usual crowds. Meet your guide at your hotel (7:30 AM highly recommended) and then travel together to the Vatican well ahead of opening time (7:45 AM), so you can be among the first to enter the museums. Enjoy direct entrance to the much less crowded museum complex before it is open to the general public (9:00 AM). Your personal story-teller will uncover the legends and mysteries behind the art and enlighten you to the genius of the Renaissance masters expressed through their world-renowned masterpieces. Discover the benefits of being on a private tour and customize your tour to your needs. Decide with your guide to see the Sistine Chapel first, or enjoy the regular itinerary - including the famous Raphael Rooms - with the Sistine being last part of your journey through the museum. During your visit, you will have a chance to see one of the world’s finest collections of sculptures, carvings, frescoes, and paintings. Your guide will focus your attention on the most important masterpieces and on making this experience easy and unforgettable. Enjoy the impressive Belvedere Courtyard and then stroll through the most interesting rooms and galleries of the museum complex. Marvel at the famous Laocoön and the Belvedere Torso, both deeply revered and studied by Michelangelo and other Renaissance artists. Explore the Gallery of Tapestries and the Gallery of the Maps. Be stunned by Michelangelo’s masterpieces inside the Sistine Chapel. Enter beautiful St. Peter’s Basilica, where the famous Baldachin by Bernini is located. End your tour in St Peter's Square, home to the famous Egyptian obelisk. The obelisk was central to Bernini's design and witness to the martyrdom of St. Peter. The view will fill you with wonder and awe and bring to completion the life-changing experience of visiting the Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica.
