What people are saying about Vatican Museums

Great experience despite how busy it is - worth getting skip the line

The skip the line ticket was a great recommendation from friends. We saved so much time and hassle by using this option. Even though it costs a little extra, I highly recommend it. If you don't like crowds then I highly suggest you don't go round these museums or go to the Sistine chapel. We did not go during peak season, but even so it was so busy that we were basically just pushed along the whole time. We somehow managed to get a few of the seats around the edge of the Sistine chapel and were glad of it so we could actually appreciate what we were seeing. You are otherwise made to stand in silence in the centre of the room, or ushered straight out. There was of course an overwhelming amount to see and it was a great (if claustrophobic) experience.

You have to traipse through the whole museum. Very crowded

Definitely do the option to skip the queue, else you’ll waste the day stuck on the sun for hours. Beware of the tours trying hardest to make you buy additional tickets. You’re not told you can’t take photos of the Sistine chapel until you’re about to enter. After about 2hrs of a crowded line of cattle trying to get there through the museum, it’s disappointing not to be able to take photos! However, saying that, the Sistine chapel itself is actually awe inspiring. But the problem being so crowded, the security staff usher you through very quickly! Not ideal, so be prepared to be treated like cattle.

Easy to get in, but oh, so many people inside...

We got more or less straight in, of course we had to line up for security like everyone lse, but that went quite fast. So no complaints as for tickets! However, both the museums and the Sistine Chapel were crammed with people, which also made the experience a little less grand.

We were so happy with the skip the line tickets

We had a hard time finding the entrance so we were almost a half hour past our admittance time and it was still a breeze to get in. We got off the bus at st Peter's square and had to walk all the way around the vatican city wall to get to the entrance.

Guiliano, a great guide, really knew his subject

The skip the line tour starts in a square near the Vatican. Allow plenty of time to find it. Be sure to cover your shoulders and knees. The Sistine Chapel is amazing, please respect it as a holy place, not just another place to visit.
