Private 3-hour Tour of the Vatican, Rome
Our Vatican tour will give you the exclusive experience of visiting the museum at 8 am instead of the usual opening hour of 9 am. Miss those big crowds.
You will meet your guide at 7.30 a.m. right in front of the Vatican Museum. This tour is designed specifically for our young travellers who will discover the Vatican's collection of art through the exciting stories of mythology and history.
We will tour at your own pace; stops include the Laocoon Courtyard, the Animal Gallery, the Round Room with Nero's large bathtub, the Gallery of Tapestries and the Gallery of Maps.
After exploring the unique galleries, we will visit the Sistine Chapel and discover the world-famous frescoes by Michelangelo. Children will learn about Rome in 1500s and see how the artists and the pope lived at that time.
Leaving the Sistine Chapel we will head for St Peter's Basilica, today one of the largest Catholic churches in the world.
The early access will enable you to appreciate and enjoy the sites without the stress and hassle of large crowds.
