Your ‘Exclusive First Entry Sistine Chapel & Vatican Museums Tour’ begins just outside the Vatican Museums early morning, where you will receive your tickets and will be accompanied to the Sistine Chapel. Entering the chapel as one of the first visitors, you will have the time and the space to contemplate its beauty. This is a far cry from the crowded afternoons when there's barely room to move around, let alone appreciate, this incredible space.
To this day, critics say that no artist’s work has ever approached the scale, technical skill, and sense composition of Michelangelo's frescoes. People from all over the world have been awestruck by the powerful imagery of the Creation of Adam, painted on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, while others have marvelled at The Last Judgment, which adorns the altar wall. By opting for the Sistine Chapel tour you will have the luxury to see these 15th century masterpieces for yourself, up close and personal. Since talking inside the chapel is not allowed, you will be given information about these masterpieces before entering.
