tour description

Discover one of the world’s most important collections of art before the crowds arrive with a pre-booked entrance ticket to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel.

Access the Vatican Museums an hour before the general public is admitted, and wander the corridors, courtyards, and galleries of art, antiquities, and ancient maps without the usual hassle.
Find yourself in the smallest county in the world in Vatican City. What it lacks in size it makes up for by the immense list of art it puts at your disposal. Marvel at masterpieces by Michelangelo, Raphael, Caravaggio, and other craftsmen of the Renaissance. See historic maps by ancient cartographers, and stunning sculptures from Ancient Greece.

Save the best for last as you enter the Sistine Chapel and admire Michelangelo's fresco of “The Last Judgment" on the altar wall. Pause to reflect on this masterpiece of the Renaissance, depicting the Second Coming of Christ and final and eternal judgment by God of all humanity.
