Overview

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.

I honestly had not even heard of the Vatican Museums and only knew about the chapel and the basilica. What a pleasant surprise it was when I realised that there was so many places to see in the Vatican. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about all of the art and the history. I strongly recommend everyone to visit the Vatican with a private guide and you also get to skip the lines.

My fiancé and I bought tickets to do the 'early morning' tour with Fe (vivicos tours). It starts at 07h30 and it's best to get there on time as this tour 'starts on time' unlike some other tours we've been on. You'll be taken across the street to wait in a queue outside the Vatican doors. (Doors do not open until 08h00);however with Fe, she makes it fun and takes the time to explain the Sistine Chapel (as you cannot speak inside the chapel as it is a religious place). the tour starts at 08h00, minus time to get headsets and ends around 10h30. Fe does a fabulous job of explaining the Vatican rooms, art, history, plus st. Peter's, in an easily digestible manner. We're both thrilled to have had her as our guide.

It was all was great. Our guide was knowledgeable and very helpful in getting my mother's wheelchair through the crowds. We could not imagine a better guide. Thank you. Renting a wheelchair from the museum was simple. Just remember to bring your passport.

Our tour guide was amazing. My mother was having problems walking. she arranged for her to get a wheelchair. she changed the tour to fit being with someone that was in a wheelchair. she was extremely knowledgeable about the Vatican, but also gave us tips about other places that we would be visiting on our trip. We booked the private tour and it was so worth it

We were literally so well taken care off during our entire tour that it made for the start of a great holiday. We booked another three tours with the same company and enjoyed every one of them. I highly recommend this company, they are professional and the guides were the best.

Our guide took his time leading us through the many rooms, while explaining the history and importance of what we were seeing. Our 3 hour private tour was worth the money and really the only way to see the Vatican. Thanks again for making our trip so amazing.
