Description

Located north of the ancient city of Rome sits the glorious Vatican City, one of the most sacred places in Christian history. The artistic and architectural marvels that hide inside attest to its formidable historical and spiritual heritage. There is no need to be religious to appreciate the art and architectural masterpieces of the finest Italian masters. So, pre-book Vatican museum tickets (including Sistine Chapel) and gain access to all Vatican treasures.
 
The Vatican welcomes thousands of daily visitors no matter the time of year. It's hardly surprising! Its religious, historical, and artistic appeal is stretched beyond borders and reaches international proportions. For many travelers, the St Peter's Basilica and Vatican Museums are the are the sights on top of their to-do list on their Roman holiday. Consequently, the Vatican ticket office is drowning in demand overload on a daily basis. The museum of Vatican, as well as St Peter's Basilica tickets with special accesses, sell out outrageously quickly. Online booking is the easiest way to avoid the lines!

Ticket Highlights

Imagine waiting in a queue that doesn't seem to be moving forward at all. Imagine hours of just standing there exposed to the crowd as well as the whims of the weather. Surely not an experience anybody wants to associate with their vacations! Buy Vatican city tickets in advance including VIP early access with us and save yourself the anxiety, boredom, sore feet, and frustration.


In addition to the fast-track access to the Vatican museum in Rome, our Vatican skip the line tickets price includes to Sistine Chapel, St Peter’s Basilica, early access privilege and the possibility to update to Vatican tours at any time. The early access is especially important when it comes to visiting the Sistine Chapel. The chapel is quite small (in comparison to the huge number of people visiting it every day), and the crowd never stops streaming in. So, later in the day, you don’t have much time to admire the frescoes before being “pushed out” of there way too quickly.

 

Being able to enter the place one hour in advance general public gives you a chance to appreciate the Sistine Chapel in the peace and tranquility this work of art truly deserves.

History Sneak Peek

The Vatican City sits on the banks of the Tiber River and watches Rome from the top of a hill. This little corner of the world hides one of the most far-reaching and extraordinary pasts.


Evolution of the Vatican State

Today, the Vatican serves as the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church. Furthermore, it’s home to the Pope and the College of Cardinals. Although we know it as the Vatican City, since 1929, it is a Sovereign State. How could that be? Well, in the past, it was normal for popes to hold power over regional territories. They were known as the Papal States. That was until 1870 when the finally unified Italian government reclaimed virtually all of the lands outside of the city walls. This led to a 60-year long standoff between the government and the church. They, at last, reached an agreement in February 1929 and sealed it by the Lateran Pacts. Signed by Mussolini on behalf of King Victor Emmanuel III, the agreement declared the Vatican City as a sovereign state and gave the church 92-million compensation for the loss of the Papal States.


Nowadays, the Vatican has just over nine hundred full-time residents and around three thousand commuting workers. The city hugs St Peter's Basilica standing proudly at its very center. Overlooking the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Square, this exquisite building is a combination of efforts of great artists including Raphael, Michelangelo, Bramante, Bernini, and Maderno. The Basilica stands guard to the tomb of Saint Peter the Apostle and is the largest religious construction on Earth.


Origin of the Vatican Museums

Interestingly, the Vatican Museums sprouted from the sculpture collection of Pope Julius II. Though the first one to open one of its galleries to the public was Pope Clement XIV in 1773. Following popes continued to expand the collections as the years went by. For example, the collection acquired the Gregorian Egyptian Museum and Ethnological Museum, etc. Today, Vatican prides itself on one of the largest art collections in the whole world.

Curiosities 

Despite its symbolic size, the Vatican state enjoys its own telephone system, Vatican gardens, post office, astronomical observatory, radio station, a banking system, and a pharmacy! On the other hand, the state has to import almost all the essential goods like water, food, gas, and electricity. It’s interesting to know, the country’s banking operations have been public since the 1980s and its earnings come largely from voluntary contributions.
