Important information

  • Explore Michelangelo's famous frescoes in the Sistine Chapel – including The Creation of Adam on the ceiling
  • Visit the Raphael Rooms, the Gallery of Maps, and Caravaggio's Deposition – all included with your Vatican Museums ticket
  • Observe some of the finest painted art and masterpieces of sculpture in the Vatican Museums and take a sightseeing bus around Rome

With these skip-the-line tickets to the artistic highlights of Vatican City, you can bypass the long queues outside the Vatican and go straight to the entrance. No waiting, just wall-to-wall masterpieces.

The Vatican Museums are a must-see in Rome, not only for their extensive collections of art, archaeology and ethnology, all collected by the Popes over the years: this is the house of some of the most lavishly decorated halls and galleries in the country!

Michelangelo created more than 300 figures on over 500 square metres of ceiling space in his stunning fresco. Twenty-two years later, he returned to create the Last Judgement on the entire wall above the altar.

Find out more about the Vatican, skip the queues and visit the Pio Clementino Museum, Gallery of the Candelabra, Gallery of the Tapestries, Gallery of the Geographical Maps, Raphael’s Rooms and the Sistine Chapel. Then take the sightseeing bus around Rome for more insights on life in the Eternal City.

Entrance to the museums was flawless, however doing the bus tour the same day is not possible as you don’t t get enough time for that. Bus tour should be not for same day but for one day within a window of 1-4 days.

Being able to skip the queue was wonderful. It is a bit chaotic when you get into the reception and need to collect your ticket, but otherwise very straight forward.

My experience was very straightforward! From payment and booking to the activity itself, the entire process was easy, quick and (on the day) well-supported.
