Exclusive Vatican Private experience
Beat the crowd by getting into the Vatican before it opens to the public. Discover masterpieces of the Vatican collections with an expert guide bringing the paintings and statues to life.
As only a guide can do, you will then take a special route, which allows you to enter St. Peter's Basilicas straight from the museums. Inside the Basilica, the guide will take you to see Michelangelo's Pietà and dome as well as other major works by the baroque artist Bernini. Bernini designed the majestic colonnade of St. Peter's Square. The square makes a theatrical ending to your special Vatican tour.
This exceptional tour is always a great success and regarded as "one of the best experiences in Rome".
After your tour, I'll suggest the best restaurants in Vatican city for an authentic Italian lunch
The Vatican is on the top of the list of sights to see for every traveler coming to Rome and visiting the World's smallest country is supposed to be an exciting and fun event. But in a place filled with so many world-famous treasures and so little time to see them all, your day could potentially turn in to a stressful nightmare. Let us take care of you so that you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty; you are on holidays after all!
Not only will I make sure to get you into the Vatican Museums hassle-free and without having to queue up, but you will also be entering one hour before the general public. The early start may be daunting at first but your effort will be fully rewarded when you get to admire the breath-taking Sistine Chapel much less crowded than usual - a truly unique experience. Your early morning Vatican tour will thereafter continue through the beautiful Papal Palaces. I have put together a perfect itinerary covering all the main highlights.
Please remember to dress appropriately.

The tour of the Vatican was fantastic ... having the "inside" story really helped to bring to life what we were observing. We were so glad to have Roberta to educate us... and her personality was perfect for this tour ... very laid back, just taking a stroll through the Vatican, telling the story ... and avoiding the massive crowds where she could. We really enjoyed her company and highly recommend.
