Overview

Highlights

  • Skip the line and see some of the finest painted art in the world, as well as masterpieces of sculpture
  • Explore Michelangelo's famous frescoes in the Sistine Chapel – including The Creation of Adam on the ceiling
  • Take the time to visit the Raphael Rooms, the Gallery of Maps, and Caravaggio's Deposition

Description

Michelangelo's work in the Sistine Chapel is widely regarded as some of the finest artwork ever created. It alone would be worth the price of admission, but the Vatican Museums are full of other works amassed by the popes over centuries – with paintings, sculptures, tapestries, and more. These skip-the-line tickets let you head straight for the entrance. No waiting, just wall-to-wall artistic masterpieces.

The Vatican City may be a tiny country (44 hectares), but it punches well above its weight in many categories. Most of all: culture. There's so much art here that this institution is called the Vatican Museums, plural.

With this skip-the-line ticket you'll miss the infamous museum queues that snake around the walls of Vatican City. Use that extra time to visit all four remarkable collections: classical sculpture, Renaissance masterpieces, and stunning artifacts from Ancient Egypt and the Etruscans.

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

We could have spent all day there and not seen everything. Even the kids enjoyed all of the statues and Paintings. We will visit again one day.
