“This was definitely the way to go by getting to the Vatican super early in the morning to skip all of the lines and crowds! If we visit the Vatican again we will definitely be taking this option as it allowed us extra time to be able to view the Sistine Chapel without the hustle and bustle of a bunch of people around!”.

Vatican, St Peter's & Sistine Chapel tickets, early entrance, with audioguide & 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 and audioguide included. These are available from Monday to Saturday with a privileged, early-access entry time of 7.15 AM - this is before the Vatican is open to the general public.

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. You'll be amongst the lucky folk getting in early - 7.15 AM for breakfast at 7.30 AM, well before the Vatican opens up to the general public. If the weather's good then you'll eat 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).

Also included in the price is the use of an audioguide in one of the following languages: Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Russian. Please note that the audioguide covers the Vatican Museums and not St Peters.

Furthermore, 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.

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.
