The Vatican & Sistine Chapel Tour with Cabinet of the Masks offers to our clients the opportunity to enjoy a unique experience. Why? First of all you will enter the Vatican Museums ahead of the opening to the general public, avoiding the crowds of the day. Secondly, you will visit the highlights of the Vatican Museums, as well as the Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica, but there is cherry on the cake: the exclusive visit to the Cabinet of the Masks, a part of the Museums which is usually closed to the general public.
The tour starts when you meet your private guide, just outside the entrance to the Vatican Museums, at 7:30am, since your guide will begin immediately to explain you the history of the
Vatican. You will enter the Museums at 8:00am: stepping inside one hour before opening to the general public. You’ll find the galleries less crowded and you will enjoy a wonderful atmosphere. Your personal guide will expertly drive you through the Vatican Museums’ extensive galleries, to let you take in the rich history and the plethora of art exhibited inside. The special feature of this tour is that you will have the chance to visit also the Cabinet of the Masks. This constitutes an exclusive area of the galleries, whose name comes from the beautiful roman mosaics depicting masks that adorn its floor. Your tour will continue with the gem of the Vatican, Michelangelo’s masterpiece, the Sistine Chapel. Thanks to the early access, you will be able to admire its beauty
together with a limited number of visitors and appreciate it as it deserves. A special passageway will bring you then to St Peter’s Basilica, avoiding the entry line. Your guide will explain all about the most important Basilica in the world, pointing out the art and architecture that enrich the massive Church.
