Pass through metal detectors at the security check point and get escorted inside Vatican City where you'll receive your entrance tickets.After the security check, you'll be escorted to the ticket barrier. From that point on, you'll be left to explore the second-largest museum in the world at your own pace. Should you decide to purchase an official audio guide for your tour, you can do that before passing through the gate. The audio guides are available in 10 languages (Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Portuguese).Since you do not have a tour guide, you can design your visit according to your own wishes and interests. Choose between Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Contemporary art, or even go for them all - you can stay inside the museum as long as you like. Do not miss the marvelous Raphael Rooms and, of course, Michelangelo's never-surpassed frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. Admire a vast collection of ancient sculptures, breathtaking tapestries, and Renaissance paintings. Enjoy a coffee break (at your own expense) in the Belvedere Courtyard.
