Beat the crowds and enter at the Vatican at 7.15 am!


The Vatican Museums welcome everyday the impressive number of 30 000 visitors, so the site is often very crowded especially in the high season (from April to October).
if you really hate crowds, this tour is perfect!

Booking a special pass, we'll enter at the Museums at 7. 15 am
The Vatican will treat us with a nice breakfast in one of courtyards, then at 8 am we'll be admitted in the collections (one hour before the general opening!)

We can visit the Pius Clementimum, the Gallery of Maps and Sistine Chapel before the arrival of big groups. At the end, we can visit the St. Peter Basilica or wander in the other collections, as you prefer

The special tickets are subjected to availability, so send me a message before the booking!
