If you have limited time and are simply looking to avoid lines and explore the sites on your own, this Fast-Track Entrance ticket to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel is the perfect option for you.
Express Entrance The Vatican Museums public entrance is infamous for its incredibly long lines. People often queue up for hours in a slow-moving procession to the museum doors. In fact, it is not unheard of to wait up to four hours to get inside during peak season, which can be extremely frustrating especially if you have limited time. [readmore] Thankfully, we have a solution! Our fast track tickets allow you to bypass the general admissions line and enter much quicker. This priority access ticket increases your time inside the Vatican by eliminating all the needless waiting around outside.

The Vatican Museums Once you have your ticket, you’ll be able to wander off and explore the museums at your own leisure. Established in 1506 and created as the private Museums for the popes, this collection was never intended for general view and only opened its doors to the public in the last century.
Since then the Vatican Museums have become one of the top ten most visited museums in the world. Containing over 70,000 works which are housed in thousands of rooms, this museum has something for everyone, from Egyptian, Sumerian and Ancient Roman artefacts to Renaissance, Baroque and even contemporary works.
The Sistine Chapel The highlight of the Vatican Museums is, without a doubt, the Sistine Chapel. Located at the end of a network of galleries, this Renaissance chantry is certainly impressive. Frescoes surround you from almost every angle, works by Perugino, Ghirlandaio and Botticelli cover its lower walls, and Michelangelo’s pieces dominate the altar wall and ceiling.
Try to find a seat and immerse yourself in the art, view key events in the life of Moses and Christ, discover how Heaven and Hell were imagined 500 years ago, and look up in wonder at the Creation of Adam.Read more
