Enter the Sistine Chapel before it opens to the general public and enjoys Michelangelo’s masterpieces in peace before embarking on a thorough guided tour of the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica.

Free tour upgrade until the 31st October 2021: In order to ensure that you get inside the Vatican Museums before opening time in 2021, we've upgraded this tour to include an exclusive breakfast experience on a beautiful museum terrace. You'll spend an hour enjoying the buffet before your guide whisks you to the Sistine Chapel, ahead of the crowds and fully fueled for the adventure ahead.
