Faster Than Skip-the-Line: Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica Tour

24,711 reviews
Home to some of the world’s most iconic paintings, the Vatican Museums attract huge crowds. Save yourself hours of waiting by booking this skip-the-line tour of the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms, and St. Peter’s Basilica (when the option is selected) in Rome. Early morning and evening tour options mean you can explore the complex during far less crowded time slots. Upgrade to a small-group tour limited to 10 people for a more personalized experience.

Just before the entrance to the exhibits there's a wonderful little study space with outlets and everything, available for use without a museum ticket! I found the exhibits very interesting, and we had a tour guide from the museum and she was excellent. Unless you are an art aficionado, I would reccomend taking a guided tour. You will definitely get more out of it!

This is a place we have studiously avoided for decades. It’s not exactly in the centre of Rome and (you know what’s coming) we are not the biggest fan of all things “modernist”. So why did we go? Well, not everything in the gallery needs “explaining”. Some of the exhibits have a remarkable degree of “craft” to accompany overblown “concept”. IMHO it’s worth a visit simply to see Klimt’s “Three Ages of Woman”. Your choices will be different and I know it’s unfashionable in this age of binary-views – but it’s your money… I was quite surprised to see a lot of work that more than compensated for the inevitable “Jack the Dripper” and Duchamp’s “Fountain” (replica?). So I’d say in retrospect, I did the gallery a disservice. Saying that, the gallery does suffer from what could be called, “Pompous a$$hole syndrome”. We visited during the Covid pandemic. Almost every venue in the capital had in place, a timed booking system. Presumably introduced, when visitor numbers were assumed to be greater than they eventually were. During our week, various tourist attractions responded in different ways (I was reluctant to pre-book for obvious reasons). Most establishments simply let “walk-ins” gain entry, due to the fact that they were empty. I don’t mean just a few folks – I mean nobody. So when we arrived at the gallery, we were asked “Had we booked”? I said no and as the “gatekeeper” pondered over this dilemma, I counted the three…yes three people I could spot inside the vast atrium that holds the ticket office, coffee stand, cloakroom etc. This did not look anything like a dangerously crowded, Covid “super-spreader” venue. The clock was ticking as we stood and waited and if the regulations said no – then I’d saved €20 and we would just go for a stroll through the beautiful park. Eventually however, we were allowed in, (after getting the “green-light” from the ticketing persons), and wandered the galleries in the presence of around twenty to fifty people – in total. No room was ever occupied by more than four people during our entire visit. Empty doesn’t even begin to describe it. In some ways I wish they had said, “Computer say no” but then I think of the Klimt, a jaw-dropping monumental Canova statue and I think – “Yeah…just about worth the money”.

A good collection of modern art. It touches on most major areas of western modern art. A lovely antidote to all the renaissance art you might be seeing. Both give each other context. We spent a two hour and that cover the collection.

The National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art is a museum in Rome, located in the Palazzo delle Belle Arti, designed by architect Cesare Bazzani. The Gallery houses a really good collection dedicated to Italian and foreign art from the 19th century to today. The National Gallery is a great place and a great museum. The permanent exhibition has small and large masterpieces that are really worth seeing.
