Early AM Small Group Tour of the Sistine Chapel with the Vatican Museums
Visit the best of the Museum and fast track to the Sistine Chapel



On this special small group tour, enter the Vatican Museums a full 30 minutes before the general public to see the Sistine Chapel before the crowds. Your guide will escort you through the long galleries of the Vatican Museums and directly to the Sistine Chapel.

Along the way your guide will give you some insight on what to look out for inside the Chapel. Using visual aids they'll explain how Michelangelo created such tension in 'The Creation of Man' on the roof of the Sistine Chapel. They'll give you tips on which characters to look out for in the 'Last Judgement' behind the altar, and add depth to your visit by providing background (and gossip) on the incredible project that was the painting of the Sistine Chapel.


You’ll end your tour in the Sistine Chapel, with the option to spend more time inside the breathtaking chapel and Vatican Museums; alternatively you can also leave the Sistine Chapel and head to St. Peter's Basilica (your guide can escort you to the entrance) to explore on your own.
