Priority First Early Entrance: Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums Ticket
From US$62.29
Overview

Beat the crowds at the Sistine Chapel by entering the Vatican Museums complex an hour and 30 minutes before it opens to the public on this early access tour. Avoid the often hours-long lines and admire the Sistine Chapel in relative tranquility. Gaze upwards at Michelangelo's world-famous frescoes without bumping into other tourists. Plus, you'll be able to explore the rest of the Vatican independently once the tour concludes.

What to Expect

Your early morning experience of the Vatican begins outside of the landmark, where you’ll greet your guide and head straight inside a full hour and 30 minutes before it opens to the general public.

As you head to the Sistine Chapel, your guide provides some historical context. You'll then enjoy the space in a crowd-free environment, allowing you to gaze up at Michelangelo's world-famous frescoes without interruption. Admire Michelangelo’s iconic ceiling fresco, The Creation of Adam, and The Last Judgment, in a serene environment.

Once your time in the Sistine Chapel concludes, you’ll be free to continue exploring the Vatican Museum at your leisure. Among the highlights are the Gallery of Maps, Gallery of Tapestries and Raphael’s Rooms, plus classical statues, Etruscan artifacts, and plenty of Renaissance paintings.

Worth the early entry but only a short guided tour

This early entry ticket certainly beats the queues and allows you to see the Sistine chapel with only a small amount of people in there. The downside for me though was that there was no guided tour around the museum other than 1 corridor. The...More

Great way to see the Sistine chapel when it is not too crowded

Well worth spending the extra money and being there at 7.15 am to do it this way. The queues for the chapel are horrendous. It was a spectacular experience - truly stunning. It was a little disorganised when we checked in. No one told us...More
