Overview
Enhance your experience of the Vatican Museums with a skip-the-line admission ticket, guaranteed to save hours of precious vacation time. Avoid long lines and marvel at Renaissance masterpieces on this guided tour of the Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure time to suit your schedule, and let a guide bring the world-famous frescoes to life with commentary.
Highlights
  • Save time and see more art with a skip-the-line Vatican Museums tour
  • Avoid often hours-long lines on this guided walking tour 
  • Gain historical perspective on the world-famous attraction from a guide 
  • Enjoy priority access to St. Peter's Basilica
  • Choose a morning, afternoon, or evening tour to fit your schedule
What to Expect
Greet your guide at a designated meeting point near the Vatican by the time selected at checkout. With your skip-the-line admission ticket, you’ll bypass long lines outside of the Vatican, which can be hours-long. Once inside, you’ll make your way through world-famous halls such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms, and the Gallery of Maps, all the while listening to crucial commentary from your guide over a headset. Among the art, you’ll see Renaissance masterpieces by Botticelli, Raphael, and Perugino. Then, enter St. Peter’s Basilica, home to the tomb of St. Peter, with another skip-the-line admission ticket and following an introduction to the church from your guide, spend as much time as you wish exploring independently.

We met the tour in their office. We were early and asked if we could use their bathroom. "Um, it's out of order, maybe you can use the cafe next door." Then we had to remind them we paid extra for the St. Peter's part of the tour... and show them the actual receipt (good thing I

I booked the semi-private VIP tour for my family of 4. Our initial arrival time was 7:15 but that was moved 30 minutes later a few days prior and clearly communicated to me via email. The arrival times are provided by the Vatican and can be changed - as we experienced. Our

Response from Info I, Guest Relations Manager at Skip the Line Vatican: Day Time Tour including Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel
Responded 7 Jun 2019
This review sounds quite strange...and confused..(Glad to hear you loved Laurel ..at City Wonders!!!???!!!???) Darkned street??!! we're close to Risorgimento Square..one of the main Square in Rome ..and 300mts far from Vatican Museums!! The line you waited in is the line everybody wait in ..because the Vatican Museums opens at 08.00..but once they open you get in fast...and before the general public infact they can enter only at 09.00 ... Last but not least..sorry if we dared to give you a valuable book of the Sistine Chapel.... simply as a gesture of kindness..by the person in charge that morning!!

We were part of a group of around 25 people with a fabulous guide, Jeanette. She was friendly and informative and happy to answer questions. It was great to have a guide that was passionate about the subject and kept us engaged.
