The Vatican Museums (Musei Vaticani) is an enormous complex of galleries holding some of Italy’s most important art, from paintings and sculptures to tapestries and classical antiquities. Adjoining St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums' miles of corridors connect buildings and courtyards housing the Pinacoteca, Egyptian Museum, Gallery of Tapestries, Pius-Clementine Museum, and Gallery of Maps. But the crown jewels are the Sistine Chapel, famous for Michelangelo's ceiling andThe Last Judgment, and the 16th-century frescoes in the Raphael Rooms.

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.
