Skip-the-Line Tickets: Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums

by City Wonders Duration 4h+ Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is £36

This ticket is perfect for an independent sightseer who wants to visit the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel without a tour guide but would still like to avoid the long lines that form outside this famous site. When you arrive, you’ll be escorted through a special no-wait Vatican Partner entrance. Then, your dedicated coordinator will give you a brief introduction and map of the museums before you head out to explore on your own.

With your full-day ticket, map, and orientation, you can design your own itinerary and enjoy the highlights of the Museums’ famous collections at your own pace. Your coordinator will happily answer any questions you may have before you start exploring. See areas most tour groups never visit, like the paintings in the Pinacoteca gallery and the Etruscan museum, or spend more time admiring the scenery in famous areas like the Pinecone Courtyard and Gallery of Maps.

No trip to the Vatican is complete without visiting its shining star: the Sistine Chapel. Entry to the chapel is included with your ticket and your coordinator will share information on what to look out for when you visit this incredible treasure.

Having Skip-the-Line tickets was a god-send. We were at the Vatican on a very busy day and not having to wait in line made our time much more enjoyable.

My wife and i really enjoyed everything, the museum is incredible. Tons of people almost shoulder to shoulder but what do you expect with such a monument? The line flows though so its not bad.
