Vatican Tickets - Skip The Line – Full Details

Vatican Museums

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.

Sistine Chapel

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.

St Peter’s Basilica

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.

St Peter’s Square

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.

Suitable for:
  • Families
  • Couples
  • Groups
  • Teenagers
  • Seniors
Great for:
  • Explorers
  • Culture Vultures

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rome in the Winter Sun! So we're off to Rome for our 30th Wedding Anniversary;- nearly 4 years overdue; after the last attempt being cancelled due to the "Ash Cloud". Some things are not meant to be. So should we let this trip lie? No! December may not be everyone's choice for visiting Rome, but what a pleasure it was;- to enjoy the winter sunshine, to still eat out in the open at night, to avoid the crowds, to soak up the atmosphere. Need I say more? Our main aim was to see the Vatican, St.Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. To save time we booked through "AttractionTix" for a No Wait Access Vatican Tour. It couldn't of been better. We were met by our Tour Guide -Chris, who escorted us through to gain our necessary tickets and entrance, without fuss or hassle. It was difficult to believe that this young man could be so enthusiastic and full of energy, as though he lived and breathed every moment in every fact he told us. Are croissants really "moon shaped" so that the King of Poland could eat his enemy the Turks?( the crescent shape on their National Flag). Did Michelangelo really never take his boots off and show his feet? All these anecdotes humorously told within all the many facts;- ensuring that the group was still awake and attentive. The beauty in the Vatican cannot be put on paper. It has to be experienced for oneself. The Sistine Chapel and St.Peter's Basilica are magnificent, but my own favourite was 'The Map Gallery' ,in the Papal apartments. Why? I'm not telling you;- you'll have to go and see for yourself. We left the Vatican, with our 3 coins for the Trevi Fountain Si the trip was splendid! Si we will return!
