Full description
Take a stirring journey through art and religious history with skip-the-line escorted entry to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel.

Meet the GetYourGuide Guest Relations Team at the meeting point 15 minutes before your scheduled entrance time to start the activity. They will be on hand to lead you inside the attraction. Enter through the fastest entrance available and then enjoy your visit at your own pace. 

Tiptoe through the Greek Cross Gallery to see elaborately-carved sarcophagi that might just contain the earthly remains of some of antiquity's famous kings and queens! Peek at the Cabinet of the Masks, or tour the Sala degli Animali to see a virtual menagerie of fantastic beasts, real and imagined. Walk the Upper Galleries, including the Gallery of Maps, to see how cartographers depicted the world through the ages. See masterpieces by Renaissance masters in the Raphael Rooms, and rest for a while in the Borgia Apartments.

Then, it’s time to marvel at Michelangelo’s exquisite Sistine Chapel, the crown jewel of the Vatican, and perhaps even of all the world’s art treasures.
