Rome: Early Entry to the Vatican & The Sistine Chapel
- Enter the Sistine Chapel 45 minutes before the general public to see the chapel at its best
- Spend 3-hours exploring of the Vatican Museums seeing highlights including the Raphael Rooms
- Enjoy skip-the-ticket-line access at the Vatican Museums & St Peter’s Basilica, saving your hours of waiting in line
- Take a 1-hour guided tour of St. Peter’s Basilica
When you’ve covered the museums, you’ll enter the Sistine Chapel again, much more crowded now, and pass through a special corridor that lets you skip the ticket lines into St. Peter’s Basilica. Here, you’ll enjoy an hour long tour of the immense basilica, including stops at Michelangelo’s heart-wrenching Pietá and Bernini’s enormous baldachin altar. Afterwards you’re free to explore St. Peter’s for as long as you want.
Traveling in a small group with an expert local guide and with headsets for every guest, you’ll never have to worry about losing your group or missing an interesting piece of information - and there is a lot of interesting information. The Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica have never been more accessible.
