Full description
Take in the highlights of the Vatican Museums, from the Sistine Chapel to lesser-known gems of the collection. Visit the Hall of Maps, the Pinecone Courtyard, the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Candelabra and the incredible Raphael Rooms. A definite highlight of your visit is the Sistine Chapel. Take some time to admire the details you have heard about, including Michelangelo’s boneless self-portrait, in which he expresses to the world that he would rather be skinned alive than paint the Sistine Chapel again! As incredible as his work is, you’ll appreciate it even more up close and after you’ve seen what it takes to create a fresco. Redeem your voucher at the Touristation office then the staff will accompany you into the Museums to get your official reserved ticket.

The organization it was organized,they took us and get us in the Vatican museum with all the information needed.But I recommend to the others a guide tour because the museum it's very big and if you don't have some one to tell you what is that you are watching it doesn't have any point!

So much to see. In an odd way we were glad we went during Covid as in 'normal times' we suspect so many Rome sights would be too busy to gain the best benefit of a visit. This was definitely one of those. It was still busy and at times quite large groups of people were very close, although all were wearing masks. Having said that it was an amazing place to visit.

We opted to upgrade to the audio guide and we would highly recommend that. You can do that once you’re there. The museum has great information and take a lot of time. The Sistine Chapel was off the charts! No pictures allowed in there and also be aware of the dress code. It’s a holy place and silence is a must. The Tourist station you check in at is a pink house opposite side of the museum.
