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.

We tried to visit last week while in Rome, but a sign on the door advised it is closed for maintenance, There was no indication of when it would reopen but the sign looked as though it had been in place for some time. There was no English version of their website so i don't know if they had details there. It would probably be a good idea to phone first if you are considering a visit.

Some interesting pieces here. Good stories of crime and some morbid torture machines. Would recommend as a stop on the way to somewhere else. Only took about 30 minutes all up.

It was really worth the visit. It is perfect place if you want to find a place which is not crowded. I was there on a thursday morning and I was there alone the whole time.

First you enjoy a long walk along via Giulia with splendid, sixteenth century palaces. Even today the area is secluded though, of course tourists are marching along but very few cars. Museum is somewhat hidden - look for Sachetti Palace-- it is next to it on a small street. There are several floors, starting with torture instruments to help extract "truth" from the accused. Later you will see methods of punishment and description of rituals to attend those who were subject to capital punishments. There are several historical reviews of prisons, and utensils used by prisoners. Barbarity is mixed, sometimes with humor but the curators made sure that presentations are free of excessive comments and are always exactly to the point. Later you will see seized contraband and other materials believed to be illegal at some point of history. Interestingly some sexual explicit material would be considered rather benign by present standards. In separate rooms there are objects of false art that were sold , or put for sale, as authentic. Extremely interesting collection. Somewhat crowded but enjoyable to see, often very good copies of real art ( for example Miro. )

This Criminology museum came recommended to us as a cool place to check out. This is a pleasant walk from Vatican city, so we stopped here after our Vatican City tour. Although there is some English, it’s mostly all Italian – which I get- but as a tourist I felt I could have appreciated it more if all descriptions had been translated. Still, saw some very cool and gruesome things. As a Canadian, it was fun to see some Counterfeit Canadian cash! I think we spent an hour here. It is not crowded and you can explore at your own leisure and pac. If you are fluent in Italian and have a penchant for this kind of thing, would be worth a visit. At 2€ per person, you can’t really go wrong.
