Don’t waste time waiting in line - these exclusive Vatican Tickets take you past the queues through special priority entrances to both the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica!
This is one of Rome’s most popular tourist spots, so these special entry tickets can be invaluable as the queues get extremely long, especially in the summer.
These great value Vatican tickets include exclusive skip-the-line-access which gets you past the long queues at the Vatican Museums and allows for more time to explore the 9 miles of priceless sculpture, portraits, drawings, manuscripts and ancient artefacts within!
Although impossible to see everything in one day, during the Vatican Museum tour you’ll see all the major highlights visiting the Hall of Maps, Pinecone Courtyard, Gallery of Candelabra, the Raphael Rooms and more.
Your friendly, knowledgeable guide will bring to life the priceless works you’ll see during the tour with the stories and legends that surround them.
One of the highlights of the Vatican Museum tour is a visit to the Sistine Chapel.
Guided tours are not permitted in the chapel, but you’ll be briefed by your guide with the help of photos and paintings before you enter.
Whilst inside, you’ll see the things discussed beforehand, including the boneless self-portrait of Michelangelo in which he forcefully delivers the message that he’d rather be skinned alive than have to paint the Sistine Chapel again!
You’ll have already heard what it takes to create such a fresco, and as you gaze up at his incredible work above, you’ll get a better understanding of how backbreaking his task must have been.
Make the most of your skip-the-line tickets again and enter St. Peter’s Basilica by a special door from the Sistine Chapel.
Except for Wednesday mornings when it is usually closed for the Papal audience, you’ll take a guided tour of St Peter’s Basilica.
On afternoon tours, you’ll learn about the treasures inside from St. Peter’s Square before entering the Basilica to explore at your leisure.
Inside, amongst other marvels, you’ll see the impressive Basilica altar and have the opportunity to admire another of Michelangelo’s works, the beautiful La Pietà sculpture.
Your tour ends in St Peter’s Square from where you can admire Bernini’s masterful optical illusion and see the famous balcony from which the Pope delivers his public addresses.
This is also the perfect spot to take excellent photos of the façade of St Peter’s Basilica.
