Overview
Nobody wants to waste precious vacation time waiting in line. Save yourself up to three hours with a skip-the-line ticket to the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, a stress-free way to see one of the world’s top attractions. A small group limited to 15 means more time to ask your art-historian guide questions. Plus, you can choose between morning and afternoon departure times to best fit your schedule.
What to Expect

Depending on the departure time selected at checkout, your tour begins at a designated meeting point near the Vatican. Bypass lines that often exceed three hours and head straight inside the UNESCO World Heritage Site with your guide.

Once inside, you’ll tour the museum and admire Renaissance masterpieces by the likes of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Admire the world-famous frescoes of the Sistine Chapel; marvel at the wall paintings in Raphael’s Rooms; and see original perceptions of 16th-century Europe in the Gallery of Maps.

Then, you’ll head towards St. Peter’s Basilica and enjoy fast entry with your skip-the-line admission ticket. Admire the spectacular interior before you bid your guide and group farewell.
