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.

Very well organized. We skipped the endless lines and we were directed to the museum entrance...it surely saved us a lot of time .....

Considering I originally spent £70+ with another company (whose rep couldn’t be found) I was very glad these guys hooked me up. I’m glad it went down the way it did too. A 4.5hr guided tour would have been way too much, I went through at my own pace and it took 2.5hrs.

The Vatican is absolute must if you're visiting Rome, whether you're a culture buff or not. It was really easy to collect our tickets from the Tiqets office that's right opposite to the Vatican Museums entrance. One of the staff took us all the inside, skipping the lines and collected our tickets from the official ticket office within minutes. It was a seamless and stress-free experience that enabled us to simply get on with exploring. We chose not to get a guided tour and got the audio guides instead from inside, which were fantastic. Make sure to take some earphones if you want to use the audio guide so you don't have to hold the device up to your ear like a phone to listen, which can get tiring. Overall, booking with Tiqets was well worth every penny, the staff were very helpful and the Vatican itself truly as awe-inspiring as we were hoping.

Used Tiqets to book quick entry for this visit and also for our visit to the Colosseum. Both well worth the money. Great saving in the amount of time in queues

Wonderful museum but the organizing of the flow of people is not too good. Quite frustrating, actually.

Very easy to find the office and friendly staff!!

Really good to skip the line to enter the museum, and after that to skip the line to enter St Peters, go into the dome (use the elevator) and you will exit inside the Basilic
