Choose the best way to discover the jewels of the Vatican without needing to endure the discomfort of massive crowds. With early entrance to the Vatican Museums, you will have the opportunity to see the largest collection of Roman Catholic art before anyone else. Explore its galleries and lounges before long lines form: admire the ancient Greek sculpture that inspired Michelangelo and let yourself be dazzled by the work of the first cartographers, discover optical illusions in the Gallery of Tapestry and contemplate Raphael’s beautiful lounges.
Of course, you will also visit the Sistine Chapel. Before entering, your guide will provide you with a complete description and background brief, so you know what to look out for once inside. He will also tell you interesting stories and anecdotes that add a human dimension to this religious greatness. You will have between 20 to 30 minutes to admire Michelangelo's frescoes in the company of few people, a great privilege considering how crowded the room usually is.
Enjoy the same luxury experience in the beautiful Basilica of St. Peter. Instead of waiting in line for hours, you'll enjoy special access through a door that leads directly to the Basilica. In the interior you will spend an hour with your guide observing Michelangelo’s ‘Pietà’, Bernini's canopy and the impressive architecture of the most famous church in the world.
