Full description
Take a stirring journey through art and religious history with your skip-the-line ticket to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. Enter through the fastest way available and enjoy your visit at your own pace. Take advantage of the included audio-guide service.

Tiptoe through the Greek Cross Gallery to see elaborately-carved sarcophagi, which is said to contain the earthly remains of some of antiquity's famous kings and queens. Take a peek at the Cabinet of the Masks or tour the Sala degli Animali to see a virtual menagerie of fantastic beasts, real and imagined.

Walk through the Upper Galleries, including the Gallery of Maps, to see how cartographers depicted the world through the ages. See masterpieces by Renaissance masters in the Raphael Rooms. Rest for a while in the Borgia Apartments. 

Then, it is time to marvel at Michelangelo’s exquisite Sistine Chapel, the crown jewel of the Vatican, and perhaps even of all the world’s art treasures.
