Overview
Enjoy a VIP experience at the Vatican with this morning tour that includes breakfast on site. You’ll explore the Vatican Museums before they open to the general public so you can admire famous sights like the Sistine Chapel and Raphael’s Rooms in a more intimate atmosphere before finishing with skip-the-line access to St Peter’s Basilica through a reserved entrance. When booking, select from two options: breakfast in the Pinecone Courtyard with a Vatican tour limited to 16 people or breakfast in the Vatican cafeteria with a Vatican tour plus a coach tour of surrounding Vatican City and the Vatican gardens, limited to 25 people.
What to Expect
In the early morning, meet your guide at the Vatican Museums before the site opens to the public. Depending on the option selected when booking, you’ll be escorted to either the Pinecone Courtyard or the Vatican cafeteria for breakfast, followed by your exclusive tour of the Vatican’s many iconic attractions, from the Sistine Chapel to the Gallery of Maps to the Renaissance artwork inside Raphael’s Rooms.

Both tour options end at St Peter’s Basilica, which you have access to via a VIP entrance. Inside, prepare to be wowed by art like Michelangelo’s Pieta sculpture and Bernini’s Baldacchino canopy. When your tour ends and you say goodbye to your guide, you are welcome to stay inside St Peter’s Basilica.

See the Itinerary section below for details about the two tour options.

Vatican Breakfast

The tour was very well organized, breakfast provided enough dining options. We enjoyed the enthusiasm and knowledge of the tour guide the most.

If you want a Vatican Tour, this is the one to take.

Breakfast was simple but delicious, everything was well organised and timely. Our guide, Chiara, was very knowledgeable and friendly, she was amazing, can't commend her enough. The tour itself is well worth the added value of skipping the crowds and the lines. Also having someone...More
