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.

Very good taste. Wine and pizza is good.
But, the room has no air condition. In the hot summer, it was so hard.
