Enter the Vatican Museums before the general public goes in. We will cover the highlights of this enormous museum with around 70,000 works in it! And we will make sense of it for you! We will visit the Sistine Chapel, where the Papal conclave takes place and from where you can admire The Last Judgement by Michelangelo and many more frescos that decorate the interior of it, some which have been painted by Botticelli, Perugino, Roselli and others. Then end your tour inside the mother of the Catholic Church, St. Peter’s Basilica, the most prominent work of the Renaissance architecture. We planned your route very carefully to make sure that you get to see the most important parts of this vast museum, to ensure that you see and get the best from your precious time.
The super early effort is worth it as you beat-the-crowds! We will concentrate on the very highlights of this vast museum and enjoy the Sistine Chapel before the crowd comes in at 9AM.

I cannot say enough good things about our guide. She was outstanding! She knows her stuff but you can also see her passion. She gave enough facts and data along with stories and was able to convey it in an informative but interesting way (we appreciated this very much after a not-so-great tour elsewhere in Rome but that is another review). I’d highly recommend Global City Hoppers for any tour!
Our first time in Rome and we booked a tour in Vatican Museums with Global City Hoppers. Well worth the money and our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. Truly enjoyed the tour and we got amazing pictures. Thanks again
