Tour Description

Our Pristine Sistine Vatican with Breakfast Tour starts early in order to be among the first to enter the Vatican - before the area even opens to the general public. Our day will begin with a very special experience: breakfast in the Pinecone Courtyard, where we'll enjoy a buffet of hot and cold offerings and take time to soak up the ambience of our peaceful surroundings.

Our Vatican visit ends with a full tour of St. Peter’s Basilica, but don't worry about those long lines - our small group will slip through an underground tunnel that takes us directly into the Basilica! From there, we'll see all of the most important works of art and architecture, including Bernini’s Baldachin, Michelangelo’s Pietá, the enormous dome, and more!

Monica was friendly and we enjoyed her sense of humor. At times I wanted more detail or time spent, but I realize there is so much to see and only so much time. :)

Laura was a great guide. We learned so much! The Vatican is crowded and confusing and she helped so much in navigating the crowds and telling us interesting information. Thanks so much!

Michela was wonderful, informative, patient, and fun! We really enjoyed the tour of the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, & St Peter's Basilica. We took 3 Walks of Italy tours while in Italy and would like to recommend a slight adjustment for this tour. For starters - the VIP label makes it appear that the tour is special and will include a one of a kind experience that no other group or person would experience. While all 9 of us had a good time we were there with THOUSANDS of other people. By the time we finished breakfast there was quite a crowd. When we took the VIP tour of the Accademia, Duomo tour in Florence we were there with only a handful of other people. Our recommendation is to start earlier with breakfast - maybe at 7 so the tour can be the first through the doors once they are opened that way avoiding some of the thousands of people flooding through the doors. We really think the Walks of Italy tour guides are the best which is why we only used them for the tours we took. We wish you much success.
