Overview

Enhance your experience of the Vatican Museums with a skip-the-line admission ticket, guaranteed to save hours of precious vacation time. Avoid long lines and marvel at Renaissance masterpieces on this guided tour of the Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure time to suit your schedule, and let a guide bring the world-famous frescoes to life with commentary.

What to Expect

Greet your guide at a designated meeting point near the Vatican by the time selected at checkout. With your skip-the-line admission ticket, you’ll bypass long lines outside of the Vatican, which can be hours-long.

Once inside, you’ll make your way through world-famous halls such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms, and the Gallery of Maps, all the while listening to crucial commentary from your guide over a headset. Among the art, you’ll see Renaissance masterpieces by Botticelli, Raphael, and Perugino.

Then, enter St. Peter’s Basilica, home to the tomb of St. Peter, with another skip-the-line admission ticket and following an introduction to the church from your guide, spend as much time as you wish exploring independently.
