Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime Vatican experience!

Don’t miss your opportunity to enter the Vatican Museums almost one and a half hours prior to the official Vatican opening and without having to queue thanks to your skip-the-line ticket.

Your guide will base the visit on your personal interests, uncovering legends and mysteries hidden behind every work of art and showing you world-renowned masterpieces by the genius of Renaissance. Finish your tour inside St Peter's Basilica, the shrine of Christianity and Art. Marvel at the priceless Pietà by Michelangelo and stop by the venerable tomb of Saint John Paul II and Pope Karol Wojtyla.
