Pause to take in the splendid surroundings (made all the more vivid with insights from your guide ahead of your visit) and soak up the history and atmosphere of one of the world's most impressive spaces.

Following your visit, you'll make your way to the Pinecone Courtyard for a peaceful buffet breakfast. Relax with a coffee before it’s time for your small group to explore the rest. With a highly experienced and well-versed guide by your side the Vatican Museums will come to life with stories and secrets behind the art and artists. 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!

Great tour and totally worth it. The early access made so much of a difference. If you want to see the Vatican, this is what i would recommend to avoid a lot of the crowds.

Sabrina was a great guide!
