What's included

Skip-the-line entrance ticket to the Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel
Grants access to all open rooms and galleries so you can discover them at your own pace

Important information

* Shoulders & knees must be covered * Photos & videos are strictly forbidden inside the Sistine Chapel
  • Skip the line last minute with your Sistine Chapel ticket and see some of the finest painted art and masterpieces of sculpture
  • 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

These skip-the-line tickets to the Vatican City's artistic highlights let you breeze past the long lines waiting to step inside the Vatican and head straight for the entrance. No waiting, just wall-to-wall masterpieces.

Use the extra time you would have spent in line to visit all four remarkable collections: classical sculpture, Renaissance masterpieces, and stunning artifacts from Ancient Egypt and the Etruscans.

After passing the Pine Cone, end your tour by admiring the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo created more than 300 figures on over 500 square meters of the ceiling in his breathtaking fresco. Twenty-two years later, he returned to create The Last Judgement on the entire wall above the altar.

  • Show your smartphone tickets at the security guards at the Vatican Museums entrance. Then, pass the security checks and scan your tickets at the entrance turnstiles
  • Be on time, as Vatican personnel may not let in latecomers
  • Make sure to bring a valid ID for reduced tickets. Without valid ID, you will be asked to pay for a full price ticket in order to enter and the discounted ticket will not be refunded
  • The Vatican Museums are most easily reached by public transport and a short walk from the nearest metro, tram, or bus station. If you come by car, there is paid parking nearby on Viale Vaticano.

Easy to use. Loved skipping the line. I’ve been inside the museums before and really just wanted to get back to the Sistine chapel one more time. This was the way to do it!
