VIP Key Master's Tour: Open The Sistine Chapel
  • VIP Key Master's Tour: Open The Sistine Chapel

    - Join the Vatican's Key Master, opening the Vatican Museums for the day
    - Follow an official Vatican guide, sharing context in each of the galleries you visit
    - Enjoy a complimentary breakfast in the Pinecone Courtyard
    - Spend as much time as you desire inside the Vatican after your tour

    For the first time ever, the Vatican Museums are allowing guests to travel with the Key Master as they perform their daily ritual - opening up the extensive network of galleries including the Sistine Chapel. Join us for two hours inside the world's most revered museum along with an official Vatican guide and a filling buffet breakfast.

    Just before the sun rises over Rome, a small group gathers for a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. Soon they will greet the Vatican Museum's Key Master - the individual responsible for opening the seemingly endless web of galleries filled with some of the world's most pristine works of art - including the Sistine Chapel.

    As you pass through the Pope's palace, lights flicker on and illuminate works by Raphael, Michelangelo, and other Master artists. An official Vatican guide joins as well, adding color and character to these hallowed halls. Along the way, they will introduce you to famed frescos, marble sculptures, and artifacts of grandiose proportions. Void of the daily crowds, you will appreciate the time and space given in one of the world's most revered spaces.

    A highlight, for sure, is the small wooden doors leading into the Sistine Chapel. It is here the Key Master graciously allows our guests a chance to turn the key and pry open the old doors, just as cardinals and popes have done for centuries. Beyond the doors, the celestial figures of Michelangelo, Botticelli, and Perugino await your arrival.

    After a few hours preparing the galleries for the daily flow of visitors (none of who you saw!), you will enjoy an exclusive buffet breakfast in the famed Pinecone Courtyard - you've earned it after all your hard work!
