Sistine Chapel Tickets - Early Entry – Full Details

Enjoy an intimate visit to one of the most important sites in Rome with our early access Sistine Chapel tickets.

You’ll meet early in the morning and bypass the crowds which have already formed outside the Vatican Museums.

Your priority entrance skip-the-line Sistine Chapel ticket allows you to enter the Vatican Museums where the Sistine Chapel is located, 75 minutes before the doors are opened to the public.

When you enter this beautiful building, you’ll be struck two things, the fact that it is empty of people and by the calm and quiet within, a stark contrast to later in the day when it can be difficult to move for the crowds!

Whilst inside, look out for the boneless self-portrait of Michelangelo, painted to put across the message that he’d rather be skinned alive than paint the Sistine Chapel again!

As you look up at this incredible work above, you’ll begin to get a better understanding of the backbreaking nature of his task.

Following your visit to the Sistine Chapel you are free to enter the Vatican Museums and wander the halls, rooms and palaces at your own pace. Your guide will leave you with a map introducing the most important sights.

Having had an early start, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the nine-miles of sculpture, paintings, drawings, manuscripts, tapestries and more, that are contained within 220 museum rooms.

Suitable for:
  • Families
  • Couples
  • Groups
  • Teenagers
