Private/semi-private Vatican tour and Scavi questions

Jump to last reply

To continue my earlier thread from a few months back, we will be an extended family of 8 in Rome this June and I am considering the following options for the Vatican:

- either the Pristine Sistine or a similar one with Italy with Us, both at 8am.
- getting a private guide for our group of 8, but I don't think we'd be able to start at 8am
- a private tour by the Vatican

While I'd really like to take the early 8am tour its going to cost quite a bit for the 8 of us, which makes me wonder if I could get a private guide for that price. How much would a private guide cost, could you recommend anyone? Also, does the Vatican have tours for private or small groups? I know that they have an after-hours tour, but that's not what I'm looking at.

I have also emailed for the Scavi tour but haven't heard from them, not even the automated reply everyone else seems to get. Would it help to call and ask, has anyone got spots on the tour without getting the automated reply?

Look forward to your input, thanks in advance!
