This is a MUST if visiting the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. Lines for general admission are very, very long and can take hours. Skip the lines got us into the museum and on our way to exploring within 10 minutes of our arrival.

It was very easy to exchange our tickets for the official Vatican tickets. There were signs outside and at the counter that were clearly marked with the Get Your Guide sign. Highly recommend getting your tickets through them!

We are so glad we pre-booked this. We surpassed a very long line to get in on a very hot day. Getting the audio guides was a quick and easy process and we were able to enjoy the museums and Sistine chapel at our own pace.

The guided tour of the Colosseum made the experience much more complete. Without our guide, I would have gone straight through almost everything without understanding the richness of the place.

There was no queue to get in (check in was at 4-4:30 pm). The incredible works of art, a lot of history... the Sistine Chapel is a spectacle. I recommend it 100%.
