Experience the Vatican as the Pope himself does by entering before doors open to the public with our 8:30am VIP Vatican Tour. At this time, the winding corridors, sweeping hallways and stunning chapels are near-empty, allowing our small group to explore in the peace and tranquillity that the great Catholics of history intended. Those visiting the Vatican unguided often find themselves dazzled by the plethora of works on display here - which can make it somewhat difficult to navigate. But our guides have curated a bespoke route through the Museum, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica that packs in all the best bits - without leaving you lost for hours in its maze-like corridors. We also offer our VIP Vatican at 1030am and 3pm.
