A private VIP Tour in Rome

Enjoy the incredible experience of being among the first visitors of the day to admire the Creation of Adam! If you visit the Sistine chapel almost empty, you don't watch the Michelangelo's ceiling but you contemplate it. We will travel together to the Vatican and there at 7. 45 we will skip the possible line and we will step on the red carpet as a V. I. P. passing through a special entryway.

On your direct way to the Sistine chapel you will enjoy the view of the first morning lights illuminating the decorations of the galleries of Candelabra, Tapestries and Maps, while I introduce you to the story of Michelangelo's masterpieces of art.

Arrived at your destination, you will fill overpowered by the energy transmitted by the Michelangelo's last judgment and surprised by the elegant beauty of the ceiling.

Exiting you will be able to take a short cut directly to the St. Peter's Basilica, where the genius of Michelangelo was expressed in the sculpture of the Pity. End your tour in St. Peter's Square.
