Breakfast at the Vatican with Private Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel & St. Peter's Basilica Tour - Skip the Lines

Enter the Vatican Museums before the general public with this early morning exclusive buffet breakfast and private tour.

Once meeting with your guide you will have priority entrance into the Vatican Museums where you will enjoy a full Italian-American Buffet Breakfast prepared by top Vatican chefs and served in the beautiful Pinecone Courtyard.

This exclusive buffet consists of coffee, tea, fresh juice, fruits, yogurts, cereals, bread as well as fine cured Italian meats and cheeses. Pancakes and eggs are also prepared directly in front of your eyes on demand; just to way you like it.

After breakfast, you guide will lead you on a private tour through the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel visiting some of the most important artworks in the world. The Museums are extremely quiet at this hour so you will have the rare chance to wander through the largest collection in the world without the crowds.

This tour will visit the Gallery of the Maps, Gallery of the Tapestries, Old Papal Apartments with the Rooms of Raphael, Gallery of the Candelabra as well as the unforgettable Sistine Chapel.

Any visit to the Vatican is not complete without seeing St. Peter's Basilica; the largest church in the world. See the wonders of Michelangelo, Bernini and many others who have made the Vatican the magical place that it is today.

There is no better way to visit the Vatican City than with a full belly and a private tour guide who will uncloak the majesty and mystery of the Holy See on this unique experience, as well as a V.I.P (Skip the Line) Entrance.
