Skip-the-line entry ticket

Important Information

  • - Refunds will not be issued if missed due to late or non-arrival - Skip-the-line tickets do not guarantee immediate entry into the museum. There will still be security checks or other procedures that need to be completed before you can enter. - Make sure to check the opening days and times of the Vatican Museums, as they are closed on Sundays (except the last Sunday of each month when the museum opens with free entrance), and certain holidays. The Basilica is a place of worship that may be closed for religious activities without warning as the Sistine Chapel as well; in this case, you can not access the St. Peter’s Basilica, and access is not included in this ticket. You will get a Free Pass to enter St. Peter’s Basilica on your own. Normally, St. Peter's Basilica has another door that allows visitors to walk straight from the Sistine Chapel to the Basilica. However, please note that this door might occasionally be closed due to various reasons beyond our control.
