Enjoy the greatest treasures of Rome in true VIP exclusivity, with a strictly private after-hours tour and dinner
The Vatican and the Sistine Chapel are iconic symbols of Rome and among the most visited tourist attractions on the planet.
Thousands of people queue for hours each day to catch a glimpse of the magnificent treasures within.
These stunning sites are certainly worth the queues – and the jostling with other visitors for a rushed, fleeting glimpse of the most spectacular sections. But why be part of the crowd when you can see these sights as a VIP?
Experience the stunning halls, precious artwork, awe-inspiring architecture and phenomenal history as a true Elite Traveler should, in absolute exclusivity in the manner of the ultimate VIPs: the Popes and Cardinals who made this monumental place their home.
For your next trip to Rome, Elite Traveler recommends two very special experiences that deliver just this. They can be enjoyed separately, or, for exceptional decadence and exclusivity, together.
Italy’s Best Rome, a 30-year specialist in bespoke and luxury Rome experiences, enjoys a long-standing special relationship with the Vatican, which allows the company to gain special private access to highly secure sites, and to tailor the experience exclusively to your specific needs. This tour stands head and shoulders above the numerous other “private tour” companies, and the Vatican’s own private tour options, by being truly private and elite. Unlike other private tours, which can entail a group of 20 or 30 strangers, not a single person will be in the Museums and the Sistine Chapel other than you and your party, your professional guide and Vatican staff. You will have time and space to marvel and contemplate your surroundings, and experience the opulent glory of the Vatican, in a way that only a few ever do.
This is the last word in ‘elite’ – a superb, sumptuous gala dinner in one of the many impressive areas of the Vatican, catered to your specifications, with a view of St Peter’s Basilica that is usually reserved for the privileged inner circle of the Roman Catholic Church. This highly formal event, which accommodates up to 250 people but could even be for just two, makes for the ultimate in corporate or personal hospitality. Whether you’re looking for an immensely stylish formal celebration or a once-in-a-lifetime romantic surprise, Elite Traveler has seen no finer way to impress and delight your guests on a VIP trip to Rome.
