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.

Directions to #95 across the street and up from the Vatican Museums entrance was not clear, and we were not told what to expect with the process. But all worked out great getting through security, and then to the entrance with tickets in hand.

Quick and very efficient. They were able to get my family and myself into the Vatican museum on a Wednesday, which is difficult because of the Pope's audiences scheduled on Wednesdays.

Efficient. Proficient. Happily going about their business diffusing the terror struck into us by the scary reports of agonising queues to get into the Vatican.

Very glad I have decided to book Skip the line ticket with someone, who physically takes u through special exit and handle tickets inside the museum !! Really NO lines !! Plus, their company office is also even not far from entrance but out of the way of all other companies you see walking towards the museum .
Highly recommend them !! It was all very efficient and ontime !!
