Every small group walking tour of the Vatican Museums has a fixed route as determined by the tour operator. Rip up the script! There are many hundreds of must-see sculptures and paintings plus dozens of magnificent galleries and hidden chambers which are routinely missed by tour guides. Yes, skip the line!. No! Don't skip anything inside the Vatican Museums with our all-encompassing self-guided quest and zero time limits.
Your skip-the-line Vatican ticket is really the absolute best way to get past the long waiting lines and multitudinous tour groups straining to hear bombastic guides via dysfunctional audiosets. A walking tour is absolutely not the way to spend time inside the Vatican Museums. The key to enjoying and learning about the incredible art, archaeology and history therein is time enough to see everything of interest and more besides if you so wish, not to be tied down to an itinerary set by other people. We recommend 4 hours inside the museums, which is double that of typical guided Vatican tours. However, it is important to know all about what the very best tour guides in Rome have to say about the Vatican, which is where our Vatican Adventure quest comes in! It has been compiled by an exceptional docent, an expert on Vatican history, a living legend on TripAdvisor! All that information is yours on our Vatican Adventure, either as a printed PDF or you can guide yourself by reading from your smartphone. Do the Vatican your way!
