Visit the Vatican in the best way, with no crowds and no lines!
The best way to see the Vatican? Simple! Visit the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museum before they open to everybody! Vatican City is the smallest state in the world, but it's also one of the most beautiful.
Unfortunately, the huge amount of people that come see the Sistine and the Museums every day can make it hard to enjoy them completely. That's why I decided to provide a VIP early access to the Vatican, so that you can be sure you'll see everything having enough personal space.
We will enter the museum at 8. 00 am, 30 minutes before the normal opening time, so that you'll have chance to walk through the Museum and the Sistine Chapel before the big crowds enter. After the Sistine Chapel we'll go to the Basilica of St. Peter, the most important and the biggest church in the world.
VATICAN DRESS CODE: knees and shoulders must be covered.
NO KNIVES, LARGE BACKPACKS OR BIG UMBRELLAS ALLOWED IN THE MUSEUM.
The itinerary includes the Vatican Museum, the Raphael Rooms, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. On Wednesday the Basilica might be closed because of the weekly papal audience, therefore it won't be included in the tour, but it will still be possibile to visit it on your own after the end of the tour, skipping the line.
