For some, vacations are about packing as many new experiences into the day as possible. If this is you, our Early Morning tours are reason enough to throw off those covers. While the rest of the world snoozes, imagine exploring the quiet corridors, hushed chapels, and tranquil gardens of the Vatican.
All our Early Morning tours get you into the Vatican before 8 am. This gives you plenty of time before the rest of the visitors start to clog up the place. Imagine watching the Vatican staff arrive while you snack on pancakes or croissants in the center of the courtyard before exploring the Museums? Our VIP Breakfast Tour lets you do this.
Perhaps you may want to spend your extra time viewing the rarely-set-foot-in interior world of the Vatican State instead? Thanks to our exclusive partnership, we are the only ones who can take you on an open-air bus tour through the gardens where the pope meditates on our Half-Day Breakfast Tour with Gardens.
If you prefer paintings to papal meditation, our Exclusive First Entry: Sistine Chapel & Vatican Museums Tour drops you directly in the most famous chapel in the world before freeing you to wander the other museums as your own pace.
Our Exclusive First Entry: Sistine Chapel Express, St. Peter’s Basilica & Vatican Crypts Tour combines first entry to the museums with the calm atmosphere of the crypts – an experience which is not covered on normal opening hour tours.
On each tour, your guides will share their obsessive knowledge and love of the artworks and secrets of the Vatican spaces. Having a head start on the crowds makes this an incredible and often emotional experience. Whatever you choose, enjoy the rest of your day at your leisure.
