Our VIP Vatican tour starts early, skipping the notoriously long lines into the Vatican so you can enjoy a very special experience: breakfast in the Pinecone Courtyard. Breakfast includes a full buffet with hot and cold dishes, coffee and tea and is the perfect way to enjoy the ambiance of the beautiful courtyard.

After a peaceful breakfast, it’s time for our small group to explore the area with their highly experienced and well-versed guide who will bring the Vatican Museums to life with stories and secrets behind the art and artists. Of course, one of the highlights will be the Sistine Chapel, where you’ll be given ample time to take in the breathtaking Renaissance frescoes that are simply too beautiful for words! After that we’ll take in some of the most famous artifacts within the Museums, including the Belvedere Torso, the Apollo Belvedere, the Laocoön Group, and the Raphael Rooms, widely considered to be among the most beautifully-frescoed interiors on earth.

Our final experience is a St. Peter’s Basilica tour, but instead of heading outside to wait in line, we’ll slip through a special, underground tunnel that takes us directly into the Basilica for a full tour including Bernini’s Baldachin, Michelangelo’s Pietá, and plenty more!
