Skip-the-line access to the Vatican.

The Museums & Galleries, St Peter's Basilica, and the Sistine Chapel, all on one ticket, with an early breakfast included.
“Choosing the early entry with breakfast was one of the best ideas we had in our trip. Buffet breakfast (American style) was fine, many choices, and plenty to eat. But most important, coming early allowed us to have the Raphael rooms and the Sistine virtually to ourselves. No crowds to speak of at all!”.
“This was a cool experience. Plan as early as you can - the amount of people visiting is amazing.”.

Official tickets & Breakfast.


Vatican, St Peter's & Sistine Chapel tickets with breakfast (includes e-book guide)

These are official, skip-the-queue, direct entry tickets to the Vatican with an 'American Buffet Breakfast' at the Vatican. These are usually available from Monday to Saturday until 9.30 AM - the Vatican is open to visitors from 9.00 AM until 6.00 PM - last entry is at 3.00 PM.

The tickets allow full access to the Sistine Chapel and the numerous Vatican Museums, and you may stay for as little or as long a time as you wish, Vatican opening hours permitting (access to the museums is from 8.00 AM onwards). Once you have finished your visit to the museums and the Sistine Chapel you're free to visit St Peters*. Please note that if you're visiting on a Wednesday morning and there's a Papal Audience in progress (this does not happen every Wednesday), then St Peter's Basilica will be closed until 12.00 (midday). The Vatican authorities also reserve the right to make unscheduled last minute closures, often with little or no notice, something clearly outwith our control.

Included in the price is breakfast at the Vatican prior to your visit. If the weather's good then you'll do this outdoors (in the Pine Cone Courtyard), otherwise it will be in the Vatican Cafeteria; breakfast includes both American and Italian specialities (pastries, cured meats, cheese, even eggs and pancakes, all prepared on the spot).

Included with your tickets is an e-book guide to the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel, written by two prominent Italian Art Historians and available to download as epub (for iPad and iPhone, Android, and many ebook readers), mobi (for Kindle) and PDF for pretty much everything else.

Why book in advance? Well, queues on the day can be enormous, with hours spent just waiting and wasting your precious time; with our system you can just roll up at the Vatican, join the special queue for those that have booked, present your voucher, and you're in. It is only possible to confirm bookings up to sixty days in advance, but we can take bookings until the end of the year and place them on hold for you.

*Please note that as St Peters is a church you do not need a ticket to enter and you can visit at any time during its opening hours, although you may have to queue depending on the number of visitors. If you want to skip the queues, we offer these tours.

At a glance details:

  •     This is a full 'skip-the-queue' ticket.

  •     You may use a copy of your voucher on a mobile device to gain admittance.

  •     We'd recommend at least 3 hours for your visit.

  •     'American Buffet Breakfast' at Vatican included.

  •     Wheelchair accessible.

  •     Please remember that as you'll be visiting a religious place that you'll need to dress respectfully - to not do so risks being denied entrance.

  •     Please give yourself plenty of time to get there as the Vatican do not accommodate late arrivals.

    The breakfast was uninspiring considering the cost, but it was all worth it for the opportunity to have the Raphael stanze to ourselves, and space to wander around the Sistine Chapel. I recommend this experience.
