Meet your guide at the Vatican Museums entrance, and enjoy a guided tour of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel accessing the museum avoiding the queue with skip the line tickets.

Follow your guide, an expert in art, history and religion, and explore the marvelous art collection of the Vatican Museums: your exclusive Sistine Chapel tour encompasses viewing of all the highlights, including the statue and geographical maps galleries, as well as Raphael’s hall and the tapestry gallery. Learn all about the genius artists who enhanced this tiny sovereign state’s premises, and then head to the Sistine Chapel, one of the most astounding artistic marvels in the world.
