Highlights

  • Skip the lengthy line and visit at our special timeslots of 08:00 or 15:30 for a much more peaceful experience. No one else has these timeslots!
  • Explore Michelangelo’s famous frescoes in the Sistine Chapel - The Creation of Man on the ceiling, and The Last Judgement on the altar wall
  • The Raphael Rooms, The Gallery of Maps, and Caravaggio's Deposition are some of the highlights that would be the centerpiece of almost any other museum in the world

Description

Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel are widely regarded as the finest artwork ever created. And that's not all; the Vatican Museums is full of artworks amassed by the popes over centuries; paintings, sculptures, tapestries, and more. With these skip the line tickets you'll head straight for the entrance. No waiting, just wall-to-wall artistic masterpieces (literally).

The Vatican City may be a tiny country (44 hectares), but it punches well above its weight in all categories. Most of all: culture. There's so much art here that this institution is called the Vatican Museums, plural. These extraordinary attractions are located in the heart of Rome, near St. Peter’s Square.

A visit to the Vatican Museums will expose you to some of the finest art in the world. On your way to the Sistine Chapel (the undeniable highlight), you’ll pass through the Raphael Rooms, the Gallery of the Maps, and Bramante’s Fountain of the Pine Cone. Visit at our special times of 08:00 or 15:30 and you'll have a much quieter, peaceful experience, too.

And at the end of your tour: the Sistine Chapel. Admire Michelangelo’s breathtaking frescoes - he created over 300 figures on over 500 square meters of ceiling. 22 years later he returned to fresco The Last Judgement on the entire wall above the altar.

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.

Skip the line was definately worth but the fact we couldn't get in the Chapel was a complete waste of money for what I'd paid for.

Dear Lewis,
Good to hear that you were happy about our skip the line service. Sorry that the Sistine chapel was closed. This can happen in extraordinary cases and unfortunately we cannot controle this. Hope you were still able to enjoy the beautiful Vatican Museum.
Warm regards,

Absolutely no waiting in line. Went almost directly to Sistine Chapel and viewed it without huge crowds. Good experience.

It's much faster and more comfortable than to wait in line.
At the other hand - a bit more precise information (map) regarding the entrance could be helpful during the reservation process.
However - warm recommendation.

Great way to beat the line into the Vatican Museum -- we got there at 9:am, just as the museum opened and were able to get to the Sistine Chapel before the hoards of people arrived!
