Description
This early access Sistine Chapel experience is the ideal solution for those who don't want to see it packed with hundreds, if not thousands of other people. Gain no wait entry to the Vatican Museums with your pre-booked tickets as you are escorted past the lines that are already forming and into the vacant halls of the museum before it opens to the public. The english-speaking assistant will escort you inside the Vatican, then you will be free to wander and visit the museum at your own pace, you can stay inside as long as you want, until closing time.

See the Sistine Chapel as it was meant to be seen, as close as it will ever be possible to have this architectural and artistic masterpiece all to yourself, shared between you and just a few other people. Your escort will provide a detailed explanation before entering so you will be well-equipped to spot its most important characteristics, including the 'Creation of Adam' and 'Last Judgment' by Michelangelo, without being disturbed by the shuffling masses present later on in the day.

After your breath has been taken away by not just seeing the Sistine Chapel, but experiencing it, you'll be able to use your tickets to explore the treasures of the rest Vatican Museums for the remainder of the day with the map and introduction to its most important artworks provided by your escort beforehand, the perfect way to kick off your day of wandering Rome's best art with a head start on the general public that will still be waiting outside.
