Outstanding tour! Don't miss this extremely unique and special look at the Vatican museums before the public enters. You even get to open several doors and shutters throughout the door and witness the magic of rising in the lights in the beautiful rooms. And if course with this exclusive group, there are only 20 people instead of hundreds in the museums at once.

Truly sn experience of a lifetime..... especially if you have already visited the Vatican museum during it's regular hours and know how incredible the crowds can be.

This is an unbelievable experience and absolutely worth every penny. We loved being the only people in the Vatican Museum along with the workers. It was a magical tour, and the best way to experience the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel, especially as a first time visitor. It was a truly once in a lifetime experience, and without shadow of a doubt the best tour we did in Rome - the best tour I have ever done! The guide was phenomenal too - so much insight you wouldn't get otherwise.
