Best time to visit
The museums tend to be a bit less crowded in the afternoon
  • Discover all the finest treasures of the Renaissance in the Vatican Museums, formerly the private art collection of the Pope
  • Discover the amazing Sistine Chapel, home to Michelangelo's incredible frescoes, in your own time
  • Get assistance with the security procedures before being escorted to the museums

Want to feel like the Pope feels when he enters the Vatican? Join your escort near the museums and get a hand with the check-in procedure. You'll be taken swiftly into the venue (past the long lines) to discover the Sistine Chapel at your own leisure!

Getting into the Vatican Museums can be confusing and stressful. This ticket turns it into a VIP experience.

Meet your knowledgeable and friendly escort close to the museums and you'll be assisted through security. Easy peasy.

Once inside, explore this mind-blowing collection of Renaissance art, and its crowning glory, the Sistine Chapel, at your own leisure.

See Michelangelo's handiwork, and along the way, Raphael's School of Athens, the Hall of Tapestries, the Map Room, and so much more.

VIP treatment at the Vatican Museums, it's no longer only for the Pope.

Booking online was smooth and the barcode appeared in the return email. Finding the meeting point was easy enough. Our guide, Deborah, was afire with passion for the art works, and delightfully interactive. History came alive for us as we saw new relevance in selected works of great art. A very memorable and enriching experience. Thanks Tiqet and Deborah.

Mohu jen doporučit. Když jsme přicházeli k hlavní bráně a viděli jsme tu 3-4 hodinovou frontu sděsili jsme se. Ale s tiqets to proběhlo super. Všechny jsme předběhli a byli jsme hned uvnitř.

Checked in at the office before our time of 12:00. An employee got us all together, and walked us through fast track to the museum entrance. Very efficient, would recommend.

Easy to book online. Take care booking guide as some groups are huge and you don’t get the audio guide so you cannot hear what the guide is saying. This happened to us at the colesseum.

Allowed ourselves plenty of time to get there. Once we found the tiquets office everything was well organised and we skipped the queues. Fantastic day out. Would recommend tiquets because we also skipped the line at the coleseum on Monday.

Easy instructions as to where to meet. Escorted directly into museum with no queue. Highly recommend.
