Please be aware that the Sistine Chapel is a Holy Place and talking inside is strictly forbidden. In the Express Access to the Sistine Chapel Tour the first 30 minutes of the tour are held outside of the Museums in order to give you a comprehensive explanation before entering the chapel.

Starting in 2024, the Vatican Museums will discontinue early access for ALL tour providers, instead opening to the public at 8AM. This tour will then be offered as a first entrance experience, which we recommend for a less crowded, more personalized, and fully guided experience.

Vatican management maintains the right to delay the opening of the Sistine Chapel for religious reasons, in this case the guide will modify the itinerary and extend your visit of the museums to ensure you make the most of your time before access to the Sistine Chapel is permitted.

    Charlotta was amazing. Personable, sense of humor, and her knowledge was incredible. We skipped the line everywhere we went and she even showed us some things that were above and beyond what we paid for. Loved it and would absolutely book with LivTours again.

    Amazing tour! Our guide Luisa was terrific! My family loved this tour, she was an expert, knowledgeable and fun guide. I highly recommend a guide that brings everything to life, there is no better way to enjoy this overwhelming and beautiful site. Lucky enough we had Luisa. We would give her more that 5 stars if possible.

    This is a great tour. It brings to life the work of the artists, particularly Michelangelo and Rafael, and also describes the popes. I’d appreciate additional information regarding the political and religious landscape leading to the creation, funding, and building of Vatican City and more information regarding the pope’s history.

    We did this tour in June and it was the best experience of our entire 12 day trip. Our guide Luciana was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. She guided us through the museums at a pace that was comfortable and gave us enough time to enjoy the magnificent pieces we were seeing. There were numerous times that our small group was completely alone in our area. The Sistine chapel in indescribable. I was able to sit and soak it all in with a group of maybe 50 other people in the entire chapel. This alone was worth getting up and doing to early morning tour. Do NOT miss this experience.

    Luisa was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable, personable and engaging. The lines were enormous so definitely recommend skip the line tours. The check in was great and the tour easy with two teenagers who were kept engaged and entertained by Luisa. Five stars would not hesitate to recommend

    10 out 10 recommend this tour. Giovanni was fabulous! He knew the answer to all the questions, how to get into places before the crowds and did a great job keeping my 11 year old niece interested. We learned so much! I also thought it was cool how he seemed to know everyone, he even noticed one of the gaurds got promoted. Really enjoyed the tour and had a great guide (even if he only allowed "3" questions per guest- he did not but he was very funny once you got past 3)

    Linda was such a joy to listen to and her passion of the arts came through this tour every step of the way. She catered to our family with three children and kept them engaged with her story telling. Wonderful way to experience the Sistine Chapel ahead of the crowds! Highly recommend! Thanks Linda.
