Michelangelo’s breathtaking frescoes and incredible artwork

Michelangelo’s work in the Sistine Chapel is widely regarded as some of the finest artwork ever created. It alone would be worth the price of admission, but the Vatican Museums are full of other works amassed by the popes over centuries – with paintings, sculptures, tapestries, and more. These skip-the-line tickets let you head straight for the entrance. No waiting, just wall-to-wall artistic masterpieces.

What to Expect

The Vatican City may be a tiny country (44 hectares), but it punches well above its weight in many categories. Most of all: culture. There’s so much art here that this institution is called the Vatican Museums, plural.

With this skip-the-line ticket you’ll miss the infamous museum queues that snake around the walls of Vatican City. Use that extra time to visit all four remarkable collections: classical sculpture, Renaissance masterpieces, and stunning artifacts from Ancient Egypt and the Etruscans.

After passing the Pine Cone, end your tour by admiring the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo created more than 300 figures on over 500 square meters of ceiling in his breathtaking fresco. Twenty-two years later, he returned to create The Last Judgement on the entire wall above the altar.


  • Show your smartphone ticket to the security guards at the entrance, then swap it for a paper ticket at the ‘CASSA ONLINE E GRUPPI’ box office after the security check
  • Be on time, as Vatican personnel may not let in latecomers
  • Make sure to bring a valid ID for reduced tickets. Without valid ID, you will be asked to pay for a full price ticket in order to enter and the discounted ticket will not be refunded

Additional info
