Make the most of the Vatican Museums with fast-track entry tickets!

Visit one of the world’s biggest museums to discover masterpieces from the greatest Italian Renaissance painters, Ancient Egypt, plus the Greek and Roman Empires.

Marvel at the Raphael Rooms, the Gallery of Maps, the Borgia Apartments and the Cabinet of Masks.

Penetrate deep into the heart of the museum complex to discover the Vatican's most famous site: the Sistine Chapel.

Access the chapel without waiting in line and see where papal conclaves are held to elect a new pope. Don't forget to look up to admire the splendid ceilings painted my Michelangelo, which represent the creation of man by god.

With your fast-track ticket you can access this popular site avoiding the long lines at the entrance, which can take several hours, allowing you to make the most of your time to explore the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel.


When you book, you will be offered an available time slot for the visit. The exact time will be indicated on your official ticket.

The confirmed time depends on availability. When selecting the 8:30am - 10am time slot, we will confirm the first available time that can include 8:30, 9, 9:30 or 10am (admission takes place every 30 minutes).

Please note that fast-track tickets are not available more than 2 months in advance.

  • Parfait, aucune file d'attente! Il faut juste échanger son billet imprimé contre un ticket officiel à la billetterie une fois sur place, pour passer les tourniquets à l'intérieur. Attention! Sur le chemin du métro jusqu'aux musées du Vatican, des racoleurs tous les 3 mètres essayent de vous vendre des billets coupe-file pour passer de la Chapelle Sixtine directement à la Basilique Saint-Pierre sans ressortir pour faire la queue. Or ces billets coûtent 21 euros/personne, car vous payez un guide (obligatoire). Si vous voulez faire la Basilique Saint-Pierre aussi, renseignez-vous pour acheter un billet à l'avance aussi, afin de ne pas refaire la queue et ne pas devoir dépendre d'un guide une fois sur place si vous cédez à leur proposition...
