Exclusive Early Access - Go straight to the Sistine Chapel with an expert guide and archaeologist
This private tour includes the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica and it is only focused on the main attractions of the Vatican City.
We will enter the Vatican Museum BEFORE it opens to most of the visitors, with a special early entrance ticket, so that we can avoid the big crowds. Then, we will go straight to the Sistine chapel, where you'll have some free time to enjoy it before most of the people enter. Then, we'll have a tour of St. Peter's Basilica, the biggest Church in the world.

Dress code: The Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica have a dress code. Shoulders and knees have to be covered. Shorts are allowed just if they cover the knees.
We don't have the same restrictions for the rest of the Vatican; bring with you a scarf of a jumper to cover shoulders and knees when required. The dress code applies to women, men and kids.
Only small backpacks or handbags are allowed.
On rare occasions St. Peter's Basilica can be closed without any notice. If this happens, we'll visit another section of the Museums.

I will be happy to recommend you one of my favourite restaurants in the area of the Vatican for a great local meal after the tour. Good food is essential to have a real and great taste of Italy.
