Full description

Take a stirring journey through art and religious history with skip-the-ticket-line entry to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. Avoid the long ticket lines and then enjoy your visit at your own pace.  Wander through the Greek Cross Gallery to see elaborately-carved sarcophagi that might just contain the earthly remains of some of antiquity's famous kings and queens.

Peek at the Cabinet of the Masks, or tour the Sala degli Animali to see a virtual menagerie of fantastic beasts, real and imagined. Walk the Upper Galleries, including the Gallery of Maps, to see how cartographers depicted the world through the ages.

See masterpieces by Renaissance masters in the Raphael Rooms, and rest for a while in the Borgia Apartments. Then, it’s time to marvel at Michelangelo’s exquisite Sistine Chapel, the crown jewel of the Vatican, and perhaps even of all the world’s art treasures.

Arrived early and went to st peters square and saw the Pope. What Luck. Walked around the east side wall to get to the Museum entrance and was able to walk past a huge entry line with the skip the line privs. Get the audio guide it worth the $10 to know what you are looking at.

Great experience and would recommend, we visited on a Saturday which meant for a very busy tourist experience however still enjoyable! The walk to the Sistine chapel is from the museums and to the exit is a slow walk with hundreds of people, therefore I would recommend going early in the day to avoid the slow trawl of people. This is a good rainy day activity.

Everything happened as expected. There was no queue at the entrance for those having online vouchers. First we passed through the security check, the we went to the Reception to change our voucher into tickets. It pretty straightforward what you have to do once you get there. People have to follow a visiting route (that's pretty well delimited, highlighted) and Sistine Chapel is almost at the end of this path. Get Your Guide seems to be a third-party that’s buying tickets from Musei Vaticani (official website) and sells them at higher prices. It seems pretty hard to find tickets at the official website, because third parties like Get Your Guide buy all of them and the resell them (tickets aren't nominal). But overall it was okay, the price difference wasn’t that high.
