A Unique Way to Savor the Day
“RSVP” to one of the most Memorable and
Enchanting Breakfasts of your life! - Seriously! This exceptional approach to your Vatican day starts with Breakfast in the Vatican’s Pinecone Courtyard! - There, you’ll greet the morning with a delightful menu of Mediterranean provisions sourced directly from the Pope’s farms! ( cool, eh? ) Then… You’ll be whisked off to a full-spectrum tour experience that’s designed to satisfy any Vatican visitor...
As “Vatican Insiders” (that’s a real rank they use), these guides are special. - They can get you into the rooms that are normally closed to the public...
That means in addition to enjoying classic sights like the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums, you’ll also get access to an informed and boredom-proof expert who can show you around like a friend, and make the experience pop!
Plus… You’ll enter through a private entrance that side-steps the line completely! - “Good Morning Vat-i-can!” :) And a Bonus… They’ve been cleared to operate without the headsets. (the tech gets annoying after a while… and since you’ll be in a small and intimate group, you won’t miss them at all.)
And the Icing on the Pastry? - This experience was recently named as “ONE OF THE TOP FIVE EXPERIENCES IN THE WORLD” by none other than Trip Advisor!
Did you read that?
So get yourself up, and get yourself there. - Savor the day, in more than one way! Buon Appetito!

Plan on arriving at your meeting point at least 20 minutes in advance of your selected departure time. With this tour you are guaranteed specially reserved VIP entrance slots so that you avoid the 1-3 hour wait.
After a delightful continental breakfast on a pavillion in the famous Pinecone Courtyard, it's on to the museums!
During the tour you are encouraged to ask questions about all things Vatican along the way.
Before you reach the Sistine Chapel, Your guide will give you the inside scoop, about Michelangelo, some of the special characteristics about these paintings and what to look for while you are in there, because you are not allowed to talk inside of the Sistine Chapel, shhhhhh.
Once you have taken that beauty in, your guide will take you through a secret door, that leaves you out in front of St Peters. Here you will also skip the line to enter a truly living museum.
Here is where the tour ends but you can continue on exploring St. Peters on your own. You have the option to purchase tickets (at an added cost on site of 2 Euros per person) to climb the dome or go underground to see the Vatican crypts.
After breakfast, be prepared to be walking/standing for the length of the tour. You definitely want to wear your most comfortable shoes. The Vatican Museums are vast with some steps and stairways. If you are concerned about the intensity, contact us for more information, or choose the private option where you can go at your own pace.
Most activities are refundable as long as cancellations are made with more than 72 hours notice. There may be a transaction fee of 2.5% to process the refund. Some agencies have stricter policies, these policies will be presented during the booking process, BEFORE payment is requested. Spicy Meatball is very transparent in all of our transactions, feel free to contact our superhero customer support with any questions regarding these policies.
Vatican Tickets are purchased in the name of the guest and are not transferable so they are not refundable. In addition to the 2.5% transaction fee to process the refund, also the tickets (est. 17 euros per ticket) will not be included in the refunded amount.
During State visits or special religious events, parts of the Vatican may be closed unexpectedly. If an area normally covered on a tour is closed, your guide will still provide explanations of the closed areas from outside. Plus, show you an extra site or gallery to compensate.
St. Peter’s Basilica is an active church and can be closed unexpectedly for liturgical ceremonies. If closed, the time inside the Vatican Museums will be extended. On Wednesday mornings the Pope has his weekly audience in Saint Peter’s Square so for security reasons, Saint Peter’s Basilica is closed. If you book the 10am tour on a Wednesday we can not guarantee access to the Basilica.
