The Vatican Museum, home to Raphael’s Rooms and the world-famous Sistine Chapel, is one of Italy’s most popular attractions: the crowds it attracts pay testament to its popularity. Explore Renaissance masterpieces at your leisure on this exclusive VIP tour, which avoids the crowds by bypassing the beginning queues. You’ll be free to take in the incredible wall paintings without spending hours in line.

What to Expect

In Vatican City, get ready to pass by the crowds outside the museum with VIP admission tickets. You’ll bypass the beginning queues. Once inside, you’ll have lots of time to explore nine miles (14km) of art-filled galleries.

Savor masterpieces in rooms like the Gallery of the Candelabra, which is lined with elegantly carved marble sculptures and candle-holders. You’ll also be free to wander at leisure through Raphael’s Rooms, four interconnecting galleries that are hung with paintings from the famous Renaissance master and his pupils. Enrich your knowledge of Italian geography in the Gallery of Maps, where you’ll find 16th-century plans of Italy.

The best is saved for last. The final part of the museum complex is the blockbuster Sistine Chapel, which most people wait in line for hours to see. With special access to the museum, you’ll skip to the front of the crowds to see the legendary 15th-century chapel. With an optional upgrade, you can opt to explore the galleries with a guide.

Great buy! Skip the Line - taken straight to entrance

I would definitely recommend buying this skip the line purchase. You meet the City Wonders Tour Members nearby the St Maria Basilca (close to CIPRO Metro) and from there you show them your confirmation of this purchase and they advise when they will take you...More

Just dissapointing

It just wasn't a great experience. There were 30 people in our tour group, not 20 as advertised. There's a 24 euro per person charge due on the day to enter the museum, which is shown on the site, but I didn't notice. However, the...More

Well worth it

The queue to the Vatican was very long, and in heat of 35 degrees (without any shade or breeze meant it felt a lot hotter), getting skip the line tickets was essential. Inside it was very busy and we were glad we got tickets only...More

The lines for both the Vatican Museums and the Basilica are very long. This tour was a great way to skip those long lines and get inside faster. It was easy to find the meeting spot, and from there we were escorted inside. We were...More

The crowds are probably larger in the afternoon. Not sure why.

On the guided tour they make you leave right after you visit the Sistine chapel because you go over to the basilica In my opinion get the skip the line pass and skip the guided tour and visit at your own pace.

Of course, but they "force" you to walk through the museum first! ;-)
