Full description
Choose this ticket if you’re an independent sightseer who wants to visit the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel without a tour guide but would still like to avoid the long lines that form outside this famous site. This priority Vatican Partner ticket allows you to use a private Vatican Partner entrance, ensuring that you won’t waste any of your precious vacation time standing in line. 

Design your own itinerary with your Vatican Museums full-day ticket, map, and a brief orientation from one of our experts, so you can enjoy the highlights of the Museums’ famous collections at your own pace. Start by exploring areas most tour groups never see, like the paintings in the Pinacoteca gallery and the Etruscan museum, or spend more time admiring the scenery in famous areas like the Pinecone Courtyard and Gallery of Maps.

When you get there

Meeting point

Meet at the bottom of the steps that connect Via Candia and Viale Vaticano on Piazza Santa Maria delle Grazie. Look for the tour coordinators wearing blue polo shirts or jackets. The nearest metro station is Cipro (Line A). Exit the station and keep to the right to take the stairs marked "Via Fra Albenzio". Once outside the station, continue on Via Fra Albenzio until you reach the Santa Maria delle Grazie church. Cross Via Candia to reach the meeting point at the bottom of the steps that join Via Candia to Viale Vaticano.
