Took an unguided tour because we want to have our own time as we fly back that same day. I must admit, I had that cheeky feeling looking at the people at the long queue where we just enter casually in the entrance just showing our ticket and off we go inside. It was a lovely experience inside the museum and the Sistine chapel, if it’s your thing. Ceiling paintings was absolutely incredible.

Very straightforward to get access and get the ticket. The most amazing sights at the museum and Sistine chapel! A definitely must-see when in Rome!

Was much bigger than I expected and took hours to go round but was worth it. Lots of amazing rooms.

Fast entrance through getyourguide and easy to take the tickets. I recommend.

No hassle and waiting in lines just enter and start exploring
