This ticket is perfect for an independent sightseer who wants to visit the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel without a tour guide but would still like to avoid the long lines that form outside this famous site. When you arrive, you’ll be escorted through a special no-wait Vatican Partner entrance before being set free to spend as much of the day as you want exploring the famous collections.
Book your tickets and we’ll provide you with all the details you need to make your Vatican visit as easy as possible. Start your experience with privileged access through a private, priority entrance. Then, a dedicated coordinator will give you a brief introduction and map of the museums before you head out to explore on your own.
With your full-day ticket, map, and orientation, you can design your own itinerary and enjoy the highlights of the Museums’ famous collections at your own pace. Feel free to ask your coordinator any questions before you start exploring. See areas most tour groups never visit, like the paintings in the Pinacoteca gallery and the Etruscan museum, or spend more time admiring the scenery in famous areas like the Pinecone Courtyard and Gallery of Maps.
No trip to the Vatican is complete without visiting its shining star: the Sistine Chapel. Your ticket includes entry to the chapel and your orientation provides information on what to look for when you visit this incredible treasure.
