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, as well as an informative audio guide to the city.

Save time with the Vatican Pass 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, the center of the Catholic church. Admire its golden dome and exquisite interior with a guided tour of one of the world's most famous holy sites.

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 & Dome Audio Tour

Take a trip to the renowned Cupola of St. Peter's Basilica - the highest point of Rome! Skip the 171 steps and take the elevator to the base of the Cupola. Once there, be sure to admire the breathtaking views of the Basilica's interior. The tours starts at 8:00 am.

Climb the rest of the way up to the top, known as “La Lanterna”, for a one-of-a-kind view of the Eternal City. Take in the beauty of the Vatican Gardens, the roof of the Sistine Chapel, and the chimney of the Pope's election all while learning about the history of St. Peter's with your audio guide.

Finally, complete your experience with a self-guided audio tour of the Basilica.

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.
