Be First in to The Sistine Chapel

With the help of your enthusiastic guide, you will sweep past the long galleries of tapestries, sculptures, and frescoes directly to the most magnificent and important piece, the Sistine Chapel.  By making Michelangelo’s masterpiece your first formal stop on the tour you will arrive before nearly anyone else has had the time to find a map! This will mean that you and your small group of 12 people or fewer will have plenty of time to gasp in wonder at the work of this Renaissance genius while your guide brings the art to life with stories and details of its creation.

Without the the notorious crowds you will have the opportunity to spend time discovering the incredible artwork filling every corner of the Sistine Chapel avoiding the distractions of the modern world.  If there is anything in Rome that is deserving of your full and undivided attention, it is assured the Sistine Chapel should be at the top of that list.
