Vatican City.

Fast-track, official tickets.

The Museums & Galleries, St Peter's Basilica, and the Sistine Chapel, all on one ticket.
“Everything was as you described and we were in the museum in 3 minutes.

It could not have gone better and prepaid tickets are the way to go”.
“We loved our visit to the Vatican. Getting the skip the line ticket is the answer. The lines were enormous and we walked right in!!”.

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

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 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. Once you have finished your visit to the museums and the Sistine Chapel you're then free to visit St Peter's Basilica*.

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 show up at the Vatican, go to the special entrance for those that have booked, present your voucher, and you're in.

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.

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.

*Please note that as St Peter's 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 St Peter's queues, we offer these tours.
