Tour Description

This Early Access Sistine Chapel Tickets service is perfect for visitors who want to see the Sistine Chapel before the crowds arrive. With full-day Vatican Museums tickets included, you can choose afterwards to enter them, wandering the Papal Palace on your own, seeing all there is to see in your own time and at your own pace. Or if time is short you can fly on to your next destination, content in the knowledge that you have seen Rome’s finest masterpiece under the best possible conditions with just a handful of other visitors.

Our group meets early in the morning, skipping the long lines already formed outside the Vatican Museums and entering before the doors have officially opened. You’ll be accompanied to the Sistine Chapel where you’ll enter before any of the general public or other tour groups, finding this incredible room empty. On busy afternoons there's barely room to move in here, but in the minutes before opening time all is quiet.

After the Sistine Chapel you’ll be able to wander the Vatican Museum for the rest of the day free of charge – and with such an early meeting time the day ahead is long. Your escort will leave you with a map and an introduction to the most important sites of the museum so you can get the most from the nine-mile Vatican art collection without having to queue again to gain access.

As an Official Vatican Museums Partner, we are allowed into the Sistine Chapel 30 minutes before other tours and an hour and 30 minutes ahead of the general public. This means that after your Sistine Chapel visit you should have an hour of quiet time in the rest of the museum before the general public is allowed to enter. With group size limited to 20 people or less and only two groups per day, this exclusive Sistine Chapel experience will be every bit as special as it should be.
