    Hi!

    I'm planning my next trip to Rome with my family of 5. We have 3 kids under 10. We really want to see the Vatican with no wait in line at all, so based on what I have read the Prime Vatican Tour sounds exactly right. However, I am concerned getting up so early with 3 small children, as well as their attention span during the tour. Can this tour be recommended for children?

    Ciao Lindsey!

    Great question! We completely understand your concern about touring with small children, especially when we are talking Museums! We actually suggest this prime tour for anyone with smaller children, especially because of the guaranteed no wait in line (most tantrums with children tend to happen during waiting in lines) and because tourind inside a less crowded space tends to be more stressfree for parents as well.

    Moreover, when we have guests touring with children, we try to assign our most child friendly guides, who are truly amazing at keeping small children or teenagers attentions!

    What about the Sistine Express Tour? I have already been several times at the Vatican Museums, I am bringing my student daughter in the summer, but as we have little time available I would like to show her just the highlights of Rome.

    Our Sistine Express Tour is designed exactly for those who either have little time available in Rome and are trying to hit the main highlights or for those who are only interested in seeing the Sistine Chapel and skipping through the Museum galleries.

    The tour lasts approx. 2 hours, it guarantees skip the line before the Early Morning entrance, and your guide will head straight to the Sistine Chapel with you, giving you the chance to view Michelangelo's masterpiece without the general crowds. From there, through the direct passage head to the St. Peter's Basilica. You tour will end approx around 9:30AM: when most people will start their Vatican Tour, you will already be finished!

    If you'd like further information give us a call or send us an email!

    Thank you!

    Ciao Eyes of Rome, I just wanted to thank you for the great experience we got! I must admit I was a little bit sceptical about purchasing a Private Tour with Prime access, but it was definitely worth it! Our amazing guide met us at our Hotel, called a taxi to lead us to the Vatican Museums, showed an entrance voucher to the Vatican Guards and they allowed us to enter!! We skipped ALL KIND OF LINE, that was great! We saw people lining up early outside the walls, we saw other groups waiting for the official opening....we really felt VIPs!! Highly recommended :) Thank you guys!

    Hi I have a question: Is it worth buying entrance tickets or a tour with Prime access to the Vatican Museums in February? I mean, the access line should not be that long...

    Ciao Akash,

    Thank you for your very interesting question!

    From our side we always recommend buying tickets to the Vatican Museums with skip-the-line access, as the stream of visitors at the Museums is never predictable even in February!

    Regarding the PRIME access, the experience is completely different as it not only guarantees you to access 15 minutes before other Tour Operators and 1.15h before the general opening, but also guarantees you to see the Museums in a completely different way. You will cross the "State Border" between Italy and the Vatican City State while entering the Museums and you'll stroll through the galleries in a silent atmosphere, almost as if you were walking in the Pope's residence!

    A presto!

    I'm a solo traveller, is the Private Early Bird Prime Tour recommended or would you recommend a group tour instead?

  • Ciao Tom! I'm Francesco, one of the tour guides here at Eyes of Rome. 

    Do not trust the rumors! Traveling alone is a fantastic experience and Eyes of Rome not only offers Private tours with private guides, but with real friends! There will be NO sad monologues: a private tour will give you the opportunity to answer any questions and be the protagonist of your experience! The bond that you will create with the guide will be deep and lasting .... and then, the Eyes of Rome guides Team is the top! I would really like to show you around my city ... write to our team at info@eyesofrome.com and ask for me as a friend-guide :)

    A presto!
    Francesco
