Full description
Would you like to visit the Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel on your own but want access to the benefits reserved for guided tours like Skip the Line entrance? Then book these worry-free, fast Vatican tickets. All Vatican tickets are time sensitive, so you must pick a departure time which can be modified as needed up until the day before departure. On the day of departure, bring your voucher to the meeting point where a helpful local host will meet you. Your host will bring you inside using the fastest available entry and provide an overview to help you make the most of your visit. Use the opportunity to ask questions, your host will be happy to answer. After clearing security and receiving your physical tickets in exchange for your voucher, you are free to explore the museums for as much time as you prefer within normal museum operating hours. Choose among the most popular areas of the Museums such as the Galleries of the Maps, Tapestries and Candelabra, the Round Room, the Belvedere and Pinecone Courtyards, Raphael's Rooms and, of course, Michelangelo's masterpiece: the Sistine Chapel. Looking for the insight you can only get from a Vatican expert? Choose an upgrade to a guided tour in English. Share your guide with 20 or less fellow travellers. Earphones are provided to make listening easy, and your guide will lead you through all of the highlights of the Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel. Enjoy Skip the Line Access and a tour of St. Peter's Basilica as well, saving you further time. Total tour length is 3 hours. Please note that St. Peter's Basilica is separate from the Vatican Museums and it is not always possible for those with tickets only to access the Basilica directly from the Vatican Museums. St. Peter's Basilica is also subject to closures, some pre-announced and others not which may prevent access from being granted to both ticket only and tours. In such cases, where advance notice and rescheduling are not possible, an alternative itinerary will be provided within the Vatican Museums (guided tour only) and tour length will remain unvaried. No refunds will be provided in such cases.

Easy, fast entrance and great tips!

This was great, and just what I was looking for. I was inside the Vatican Museums within two minutes - this is a true Skip the Line pass. The company rep, Paolo was awesome and got in touch the day before to make sure I knew where to meet him. He even went above and beyond providing some useful advice for my visit. Exactly what it says on the box.
