Rome may be eternal, but your trip certainly isn't! Use your time wisely and plan ahead with The Vatican City Pass, which gives you access to the city's top attractions and hop-on, hop-off bus access, as well as an informative audio guide to the city.

Save time by skipping the line to the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums, and explore some of the world's most famous works of art at your leisure. Simply head straight for the entrance and prepare to admire wall-to-wall artistic masterpieces.

You'll also visit St. Peter's Basilica, one of Christianity's most iconic locations, where you'll enjoy a super-informative guided tour in English or French.

Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums

Michelangelo's sublime fresco masterpiece on the Sistine Chapel's ceiling is one of the greatest artistic achievements in history, which is even more impressive when you consider he was a sculptor by trade, not a painter – and as frescoes are painted directly onto plaster, there's no room for error. It would justify the price of admission alone, but you'll also get to explore the Vatican Museums' heavenly labyrinth of masterpieces and treasures from the Renaissance, the Roman Empire, ancient Egypt, and more.

St. Peter's Basilica

Holding the distinction of being the most gigantic church in the world, St. Peter's Basilica has a good argument for being the most beautiful too. Many consider this to be the finest example of Renaissance architecture, and it's also the de facto holiest building in Christianity. As part of your Vatican City Pass, you'll enjoy an English or French-language guided tour of this historic temple of spiritual art and architecture.

Rome Audio Guide

Covering a huge range of points of interest across the city, your comprehensive audio guide to Rome will help you understand all the magnificent sights you're seeing during your adventure. From top landmarks like the Vatican Museum and Colosseum to hidden gems like the Casa di Goethe, you'll be a true expert on Rome by the time you've finished exploring.

Must sees in Rome

The Renaissance-era St Peter's Basilica is one of the largest churches in the world (and the home-church of the Pope). Highlights include the dome (the biggest in the world), Bernini's Baldacchino (the centerpiece of the church), and Michelangelo's Pietà (the only artwork he ever signed). For both the pious and the casual visitor, a trip to St. Peter's is an awe-inspiring trip into the heart of Vatican City.

The Navona Underground isn't the only piece of ancient history buried under the streets of Rome. Comprising five underground chapels located under Rome’s church of Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini, Capuchin Crypt is a haunting heritage site decorated with the bones of around 3,700 Capuchin friars! Delve into this fascinating medieval chapter of Roman history and explore one of the best-kept secrets in the Eternal City. The macabre spectacle of skulls and bones was originally intended as a reminder of the ephemeral nature of life. With that in mind, make sure you don't miss this breathtaking buried treasure when in Rome!
