What to Expect

Once you meet your escort at the designated meeting point, you will take a short walk to the priority entrance to the Vatican Museums. Upon entering, you will be free to roam the Museum and Sistine Chapel at your own pace, learning as you go! The Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel boast of the finest artwork ever to be made. Made up of 54 galleries, the Vatican Museums house one of the largest, and also the most important, collections of Renaissance art in the world. Built in the 15th century, the Sistine Chapel's walls and ceilings are covered by some of the most astounding frescoes ever produced.

The 54th gallery of the Vatican Museums is the famed Sistine Chapel. Completed around 1483 the Sistine Chapel is arguably the most famous chapel in the world due to the artwork located within. View many of the most famous frescoes in the world, including the famous ceiling and The Final Judgement painted by Michelangelo. Not only does the Sistine Chapel hold some of the world's most precious works of art, but it is also still used for religious purposes such as the Papal Conclave - the process through which a new Pope is chosen.

Entry to St. Peter's Basilica is free but you will need to go through the security queue at the entrance. This self-guided tour will allow you to admire everything at your own pace, but feel free to rent out an audioguide at the venue which will provide you all the historical context and information you need to know!

I keep marvelling at the Sistine chapel and all the frescos adorned on its walls and ceilings: to think that this artwork was made in the 15th century...it makes my skin crawl. Terrific views, MUST visit

Our hotel,is opposite Museum Vaticano. We were amazed at the queues of literally hundreds of people waiting in line. Up a long winding hill. I really couldn’t see how we would make a difference with our skip the line purchase. It was incredible, after gathering a short walk away from the museum we walked straight in to the ticket hall. Just a brief wait for children to be verified, then our tickets in our hands and off we went into the heart of the museum. I have no idea what extra we paid as we booked several weeks ago, but it was worth every penny. Clear instructions from our helper outside, brilliant.
