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

24,713 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 was my first visit to a catacomb so I didn't really know what to expect but it turned out great! The tour guide was really friendly and her English was pretty good. The tour only lasted about 45 minutes, if it lasted a bit longer I would have given it 5 stars. You were also not allowed to take pictures which was a bummer. So if you're visiting Rome and have some spare time I'd recommend this place!

I was disappointed that there were no bones to see, but once I understood that, i settled in to enjoy the history. Tours are every thirty minutes or so and depend on the language. We had to wait thirty minutes, but it was worth the wait. The tour guide was informative and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this sans bones.

We chose this as an ad-on to our day and were very glad that we did so. We had to take a cab there as it wasn't the most accessible place; do make sure you are on time for the scheduled tours. Mariano was a great guide, explaining how the early Christians used these as burial sites during the beginnings of the Church. Well-preserved and tastefully laid out the Catacombs are a great example of early Christian life inside the gates of inner Rome. NOTE: it's one of the few places we encountered in Rome that was cash only. The surfaces are a bit uneven, so it may not be the best attraction for those with unsure footing. Otherwise, we loved it - highly recommended.

If you’re in Rome it’s an easy walk (about 10-15) to the train station then a 10 minute walk from your stop (Libia) to get there. It’s only 8€ a person and the tour lasts about 40 minutes. If you’re big into religious history you can see the first painting/depiction of Mary and Jesus ever done. Very very cool, loved the experience
