Opening Times: 
Click HERE 

The Vatican Museums is one of the most important Museum complexes in the world housing very important masterpieces from the Egyptian Age to late Renaissance.

The museums are composed of several sections:

- the Gregorian Etruscan Museum
- the Pinacoteca
- the Missionary-Ethnological Museum
- the Raphael Stanze
- the Sistine Chapel.


HOW YOU CAN AVOID THE QUEUE
There are only two ways to avoid the queue at the Museum entrance:

- book tickets to join a coordinated group.
This reservation allows you to avoid the long queue to buy standard tickets for entrance to the Vatican Museums. Even though our ticket grants you the privilege of not standing in line, you may have to wait a few minutes at the main entrance door and at the metal detector line due to the enormous number of visitors that the Vatican Museums receive daily. TuscanyAll will not be responsible for possible delays due to unexpected delays at the Vatican The Ticket offices.

- join a guided tour with a Professional Guide.
