Real skip-the-line tickets and experiences, also in areas usually closed to the general public; first and reserved entrances; small-group and semi-private solutions for guided visits. Keep reading to discover more with us!
REAL SKIP-THE-LINE AND RESERVED ENTRY
Your customers will always really skip the two lines at the entrance, both the ordinary and the reserved one, thanks to Vatican Official Partners' Entry. This Entry is private and different from the reserved one, available instead to all the visitors who book in advance their tickets for the Museums, and represents the only no-wait access to the galleries.
Thus, even if the Vatican represents the fifth most visited Museum in the world (The Art Newspaper, 2017 [https://www.theartnewspaper.com/], with about 7km of galleries inside, our tourists can always deeply enjoy their time and visits. They can also choose between guided and at-your-pace formulas, opting for exploring the Holy See with our professional local experts or on their own, but always taking advantage of real skip-the-line Vatican tickets.
FIRST ENTRY TO THE VATICAN AND THE SISTINE CHAPEL
With us, your travelers will enter first in the Museums, to admire their most loved and usually crowded areas like the Sistine Chapel in a quieter, more intimate atmosphere. Actually, our first entry is thirty minutes before the other tour groups and one hour and a half before the general public.
Admiring the incredible Renassaince frescoes displayed in the Maps Gallery, as well as the refined rooms decorated by Raphael and the sublime Sistine Chapel and the Final Judgment by Michelangelo will be even more evocative and unforgettable if in a unique, reserved framework. In this case, too, your visitors could book a guided visit or an at-your-pace solution.
VISIT CLOSED AND EXCLUSIVE AREAS
We can guide your customers in parts of the Vatican usually closed to the general public, a bit off the beaten path. For example, we have included the panoramic staircase Scala del Bramante in our Exclusive Extended Tour of the Vatican and its Garden, without any additional charge.
Located in a more hidden corner of the Vatican, this monumental staircase was designed by the architect Donato Bramante between 1507 and 1512. Its distinctive helix shape worked as a direct connection between the official Palazzi Apostolici and the summer residence of Pope Innocenzo VIII. Now, it can still make your travelers feel like the guests of a Renaissance pope.
SMALL GROUPS AND SPECIAL EXPERIENCES
If your travelers are looking for more private and special visits to the Vatican, we absolutely suggest our Friday Night Guided Tours. These small-group solutions let our guests live a suggestive evening in the Museums, including the Sistine Chapel and the exclusive option of a dinner inside the Vatican, before opening to the general public.
For all those who prefer morning and early afternoon, instead, we recommend our Semi-Private Guided Tours https://www.carrani.com/2018/03/01/semi-private-vatican-tour/ for no more of 11 people. As the best mid-price solution between a private and a regular group tour, they join all the pluses of an engaging group approach to a high-quality treatment, involving also a welcome lounge service and a pickup option.
