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.

Great - 2nd group to enter the Sistine Chapel

As expected, got to enter the Sistine Chapel early. The initial group during the check-in is quite big and everyone will be split into smaller groups. Make sure to be one of the first few people in the line so you get into the first group. Tour was fast - our guide Marco explained as much as he could during the walk to the Sistine Chapel. After the Sistine Chapel, I suggest you stick around and follow another tour group to the St Peter's basilica by turning right instead of left to exit. You will have to wait a while but it's worth it having to skip the entrance line to the basilica. No tour of the entire Vatican museum so if that's what you're interested in, this is not for you.

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.

Really interesting tour with very good guide but too rushed

Really interesting attractions to visit but allocated time not enough to appreciate fully. Guide very knowledgeable and friendly. However stood around for over 30 minutes in Sistine Chapel due to overrun of Pope address, would have been helpful if advised that this can happen on Wednesdays before booking. Ended up having to exit and go through museum tour queues again to get to visit St Peters Basilica. In hindsight, should have done Skip the Line with audio guide and done the tour at a more leisurely pace.

Excellent Early Morning, Quiet view of a spectacular work

Our guide was knowledgeable and made it fun even while keeping to a schedule. The early morning entry was perfect to be able to enjoy the art without a ton of people. We ran out of time to into the Grotto with the guide as they were in the middle of a service but we were still able to go in by ourselves.
