Your Vatican experience begins with a traditional Italian-style breakfast of a coffee, croissant and freshly-squeezed juice at a classy restaurant just around the corner from the Vatican Museums entrance. Here, you'll enjoy an insightful presentation on the Sistine Chapel. Inside the Sistine Chapel, no tour guides are allowed to speak and so all other tour companies give 30 minute presentations in the halls of the Vatican Museums, often in areas with no seating. At the breakfast nook, you'll have plenty of comfortable seating for all while you enjoy the presentation, optimizing time inside the museums.
After breakfast, head to the No Line entrance point of the Vatican Museums where the official partner entry ensures a quick, no-stress start to this special visit.
Inside the Museums, encounter some of the greatest works of the masters such as Michelangelo & Rafael, as well as several game-changing paintings and statues that have left their mark on the history of art such as the Laocoon. Don't miss a single important stop, with an itinerary covering the open-air Pinecone Courtyard, Belvedere Courtyard, Room of the Muses, the Round Room, Greek Cross Room, Candelabra Gallery, Gallery of the Tapestries and even the Gallery of the Maps overlooking the curated Vatican Gardens below.
That's not all! The supplier is also an official Silver level Vatican Partner. What this means for you is access to rooms closed to the general public, such as the spectacular Cabinet of the Masks. Your English speaking official Vatican guide will avail of this priveleged access at his or her discretion, catering to the personal interest of your almost-private group.
Now for the grand finale: the Sistine Chapel. Like all other visitors, here you will have free time to ponder and appreciate what is arguably one of the most important commissions of Michelangelo’s career. Remember that presentation from breakfast? You'll be perfectly prepared to enjoy every fascinating detail of this odyssey of art & history which took four long years to complete.
After leaving the Sistine Chapel, you'll be provided with direct, no-line access to St. Peter’s Basilica. After a swift introduction while enjoying the view at St. Peter’s Square, you will be free to explore on your own.
