For the first time, travelers can join the official keyholder as he unlocks the Sistine Chapel and museums at dawn. This is a rare chance to experience this sacred site crowd-free, even earlier than other early access tours. And it's available nowhere else! (Viator)

Waking Up the Vatican: VIP Small-Group Tour Before Museums Opening

Not many people can say they've spent time in the Sistine Chapel alone—until now. This truly once-in-a-lifetime experience, only available here, grants you entry into the Vatican before any other visitors for the day. Walk the quiet halls of one of the world’s most iconic landmarks with the clavigero (key keeper), a staff member with the privilege of opening the Vatican’s doors at least an hour before other early access tours. After admiring the Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms, and the Gallery of Maps, enjoy a banquet-style breakfast.
