About this experience
Be smart and visit the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums with the right atmosphere!
Thanks to our Official Vatican partnership, we will be able to take you straight into the Sistine Chapel one hour and thirty minutes before general crowds and thirty minutes before any other tour operator.
So, you will visit the marvellous Sistine Chapel in complete serenity.
Our friendly guide will escort you directly through the Vatican Museums to the Sistine Chapel where you'll have the time to view this iconic masterpiece without noisy tourists around.
A unique opportunity to really admire Michelangelo's work and appreciate the frescoes which are estimated by critics to be the perfect climax of Renaissance art. The Sistine Chapel's ceiling is adorned with scenes anyone can recognize, images became "larger than life" such as the 'Creation of Adam', and 'The Last Judgment'. These very spiritual subjects deserve the right atmosphere to be contemplated and this is what are we selling to you with this special access: a real experience.
After the visit to Sistine Chapel, you could go directly to explore the Vatican Museums without exiting the structure. In fact, the Sistine Chapel is usually the last stop of a classic Vatican Museums Tour, so you just have to do the tour backward. We will give you a map to find your way inside this huge museusm (it's 9 miles long!) hosting works from the immense collection amassed by Popes throughout the centuries. You will be able to navigate this maze, discovering the Missionary Ethnological Museum, the Gallery of Maps, the Gallery of Tapestries and, of course, the Pinacoteca Gallery with the legendary Da Vinci and Raphael paintings.
Do not miss this unique chance: visit the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums as you should!
