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.

We were approached to upgrade our experience with a guided tour and entry to St Peters Basilica without queuing. Only trouble was the party were half French so it took twice as long to get round as the guide repeated everything she said!

Really good value for money !!! We were pestered my a lot of the ticket agents outside the vatican but as soon as we told them what tickets we had they left us alone because they said it was better than what they could offer!!! We where considering a guided tour but really not needed as everything has info labels and audio tour is €7 :-)

Fine in principle, but no information re how far the Vatican Museum was away from Vatican square also no access to St Peter's from the Sistine Chapel we had to find this out on site and book an additional skip the line to add to our on-line booking in order to get this advantage. The guide we had was excellent and fully informative but our time in the Museum unlike St Peter's/Sistine was brief.

Buying this ticket was extremely helpful. I recommend people to take the guided tour, which I missed.
