Vatican tickets for groups (11 to 250 people)

These tickets are for groups from 11 to 250 people only and include use of the 'Whisper' audio system. Your group leader will be supplied with a small microphone and you'll each be listening on special earpieces. This is included in the price.

These are official, skip-the-queue*, direct entry tickets to the Vatican. These are available from Monday to Saturday and the Vatican is open to visitors from 8.30 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. 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 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.

    Having the early access tickets to the Vatican from Tickitaly was incredible! Although they cost more than general admission tickets, it’s well worth it! When we arrived with our point person from Tickitaly (who was very nice by the way), the line wrapped around the side of the Vatican, it was likely a 2 hour wait, even with tickets! Having early access allowed us to head right up to the front, walk right in and also get in the front of the line at security, it was terrific! We saved a lot of time and were able to enjoy our visit! Highly recommend, it’s worth the time savings and ease of entry!!! Only thing I wish was available was the ability to download the tickets to my phone, however the hotel printed them for us without a problem!
