TripAdvisor announces rare Vatican experience for Aussie travellers
For the first time ever, travellers can experience the world’s most-booked attraction in quiet solitude before sunrise
TripAdvisor, the world’s largest provider of bookable experiences, is giving travellers a look at its new ‘Waking up the Vatican’ tour.
For the first time, travellers can experience the Vatican – the most-booked attraction on TripAdvisor – in quiet solitude, before sunrise, and before it opens to the public. The Vatican is famously popular, with travellers waiting up to 4 hours during peak season.
Check out a new video look at the experience here, and photos of the experience here.
The tour is available now and allows a small number of travellers to join the ‘Clavigero’, the Vatican key holder, as he unlocks the doors to the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s rooms, the Galleries, and more, hours before these iconic sites open to the public.
Details on the experience, bookable only TripAdvisor:
- Tour is led by an English-speaking guide
- The group’s maximum size is 20
- Available through June 1, 2019 (some blackout dates apply)
- Cost: EUR €449 / AUD $717

Remarkably, the group and their guide are permitted to speak in the Sistine Chapel, a privilege not afforded in opening hours, giving experience-goers the rare opportunity of an expert-led Sistine Chapel tour.
