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.

For the most part, it's stuff that didn't merit inclusion in a more renowned museum. Some of the statuary was certainly beautiful, but that was more the exception than the rule. The temporary exhibition was well put together- if you like learning about ancient pottery methods. (I did!) It took almost 10 minutes to buy my ticket at the front desk. Don't know what the problem was. I'd only recommend this collection if you really like ancient art AND buy a slightly-discounted combination ticket for the Capitoline museums. Or if you just want to take selfies for your social media, the industrial components may float your boat *rolls eyes*

We loved it! Superb! It is a museum that would proudly feature in NY or Paris. The staff at the entrance were friendly and welcoming, unlike a lot of other attractions in Rome. The collection is stunning. Those works of art would justify a huge investment of money and a prominent position ... a gadget shop.. marketing... the lot, anywhere else in the world, but because this is Rome and you have the Musei Capitolini round the corner, it is somehow relegated to Ostiense. Only one thing could have completed our visit: a cool cafeteria with air con, where to sit, relax and read about the museum.

We visited the Centrale Montemartini the day after the visit to the Musei Capitolini. The combined ticket allows you a onetime visit within the span of one week. The groundfloor of the centrale is dedicated to a temporary exhibition. Etruscan Antiquities returned to Italy by museums or confiscated by the police are on display with other fragment of the same origin still in Italian state control. On the upper floors sculptures and coffins are on display, often Roman bustes after Greek originals. The sculptures are generally well identified or described to help the visitor. Allthough the contrast between white marble sculptures and black industrial machines is photogenic, i am not 100% convinced by the combination as experience. Maybe you have to get used to the background. All in all, it is a very unique museum, the like of which you may not find. You will not be disappointed. Go to metro B, Garbatella and exit Via Ostiense from the station.

The first exhibition in this former electricity plant was called The machines and the gods, and it is still a great combination of the machines and beautiful statues and mosaics (some as old as 100 years bc).

A wonderful collection of marble statues, mosaics, funerary monuments, etc. Very good signage for the most part. Nicely displayed in an unusual setting of old power plant.
