Exclusive First Skip-the-Line Entrance Ticket to the Sistine Chapel

by Carrani Tours Duration 10h 30m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per traveler Price is $57

Immerse yourself in the rich history, stunning architecture, and ancient artwork within the towering walls of the Vatican—without waiting in line. Get early access into the Sistine Chapel more than an hour before it opens to the public, and enjoy skip-the-line access to the Vatican Museums and explore at your own pace.

Relish the VIP treatment as you're led into the Sistine Chapel through a special entrance not open to the public. Without a bunch of people crowding around you or pushing you out of the way, now is the perfect chance to marvel at Michelangelo's breathtaking artwork in peace. Gaze up at the kaleidoscope of colors that grace the ceiling and walls, pausing to appreciate the famous frescos The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgment.

Once you've had enough time to take in the majesty, head back into the Vatican Museums to explore the hallways and galleries on your own. Take in the ancient Roman statues in the Gallery of the Candelabra, see the intricate wall hangings in the Gallery of Tapestries, and wind your way among the impressive frescos in the Raphael Rooms. Without a guide determining your itinerary, you can spend as much or as little time in the various parts of the Museums as you wish.

Great experience visiting the Vatican and Sistine chapel at a leisurely pace and before the crowds. Found it a bit difficult to find our ticket pick up point as no board or indication of the tour company’s name. Had to ask some other tour companies.

Well worth the early start! I would suggest getting there well ahead of time if you want to get breakfast at the meeting point cafe as it was very busy. Everything went like clockwork and being in the Chapel when it was quiet and calm was a magical experience, you really could appreciate it's wonder without the crowds. The Museums were interesting and again it was nice to be able to wander about without fighting through crowds. I have taken a picture of the gallery in the advertising shot and it really was that quiet!

Company was VERY disorganized! Showed up late, had us wait while they stood in two lines for our tickets, and the lady in charge was extremely rude! Don't use this company!!!
