Faster Than Skip-the-Line: Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica Tour

24,711 reviews
Home to some of the world’s most iconic paintings, the Vatican Museums attract huge crowds. Save yourself hours of waiting by booking this skip-the-line tour of the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms, and St. Peter’s Basilica (when the option is selected) in Rome. Early morning and evening tour options mean you can explore the complex during far less crowded time slots. Upgrade to a small-group tour limited to 10 people for a more personalized experience.

This is one of those museums completely ignored by hordes of tourists. It is already good. My visit was in December and there were at the most ten people on the four floors of this spectacular museum. The greatest masterpieces of the Roman world: sarcophagi of Roman noblemen, magnificent sculptures, elaborate reliefs, amazingly preserved frescos, mosaics, and stuccoes are on display in the museum galleries. They are beautifully organized, not cluttered together, and masterfully done signing boards provide all required information to visitors. The exhibits mostly came to the museum from the excavations undertaken in Rome and the vicinities. Practical tip: If you are feeling hungry, there is a cafe and a restaurant.

The First floor is closed "due to Covid-19" (why? It does not make any sense), but they charge full price! The staff are not able to give information about why the museum has reduced the experience.

Ancient restored palazzo with superb collection of Greek & Roman antiquities, sculptures, a small bust of Caligula and of Augustus; nice courtyard with Greek sculptures in bronzes of a Hellenistic prince holding a spear. Palazzo Massimo is home to one of principal parts of the Museo Nationale Romano. many amazing pieces of portraits and as vived a good representation of patrician Roman life; a lot of mosaics and finest frescoes of Roman houses; very nice museum.

The Palazzo Massimo alle Terme is located near the Piazza della Republica and the Baths of Diocletian. It is a small building that has a wonderful collection from ancient Rome. If you are in this area of Rome, you should take the time to come to this museum. The museum has statues,mosaics and frescoes that are displayed in exhibits on different floors. The Boxer at Rest, Discus Thrower and states of Romans should not be missed. The highlight of the museum is the frescoes on the second floor.
