About The Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel:

A visit to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel is a must if want to get the full flavour of Rome's religious and artistic heritage. As queues are fairly long throughout year, especially during peak seasons, have your normal City Sightseeing Rome tour include skip-the-line access to both attractions.

Experience the intricate beauty of the Hall of Maps, see modernist marvels in the Pinecone Courtyard, and stand in awe of Michelangelo's iconic frescoes. Between 09:00 to 15:00 you'll be given all the time you need to explore the ins and outs of these two incredible landmarks. So what are you waiting for, or should we say, what are you 'not' waiting for.

This combination ticket grants entry to all of the Vatican Museums' highlight areas, including: the Hall of Maps, the Pinecone Courtyard, the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Candelabra and the breathtaking Raphael Rooms. Keep your eyes peeled for iconic works by Leonardo da Vinci (St. Jerome in Wilderness), Raphael (Adoration of the Magi) and Caravaggio (Entombment).

The hight point for many is arguably the Sistine Chapel, whose roof Michelangelo repainted (at great physical and mental cost) between 1508 & 1512 for Pope Julius II. A few of his most notable frescos include the The Creation of Adam, God Dividing The Waters and The Downfall of Adam and Eve. Michelangelo isn't, however, the only artist to have contributed frescos to this magnificent building. Observe the surrounding walls and you'll see works by Sandro Botticelli (Temptation of Christ) and Cosimo Rosselli's Last Supper.



Note that the local bus tour operator is able to accommodate visitors with wheelchairs or with walking disabilities. Large handbags, haversacks etc, are not permitted inside the Vatican Museums. Wardrobe services are not available.
