    Vatican Museums
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Start your tour as you meet your guide a few minutes away from the museum's entrance early in the morning before the doors are officially opened to the general public. Which means you’ll bypass the usual crowd at the museum, Skip-the-line and pick up a headset to hear the details provided by your guide of one of the world’s greatest collections of art. Discover some of the most famous and world’s finest collections of sculptures, carvings, frescoes, and paintings as you walk through the Vatican museum. You’ll also stroll through some of the most important rooms and galleries in the museum complex and stop by at the famous Pinecone Courtyard, Raphael’s Room and Sistine Chapel. Here at the Sistine Chapel admire the priceless frescoes before the crowd arrives. You’ll be stunned at the guide show you and explain the Michelangelo’s masterpiece of Pieta' and Bernini's Baldachin. From the Sistine Chapel, skip-the-line by using a secret passageway to enter into the St. Peter’s Basilica directly from the museum (not guaranteed during the Jubilee Year as special ceremonies inside the Basilica may lead to its closure). The guide will introduce to the largest and most important church in the Christian faith and also the reasons how it’s known as the home to many Renaissance and Baroque paintings. Your three-hour tour will end at the grand St. Peter’s square, but before the tour ends the guide will also fascinate you with the story of Michelangelo’s and Bernini’s double colonnade. We guarantee that you’ll never regret the early wake!
