Faster Than Skip-the-Line: Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica Tour
24,665 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.

Although it is outside the main tourist sites in Rome, it is easily reached via subway. The trickiest thing about getting there by subway is that the stop is way on the other side of the Cathedral and you need to walk around the perimeter to access the check point and entrance.

Outside the historic centre but so thoroughly worth the visit. The outside is peaceful, tranquil, perfect for reflection. The inside tends to be as artistically glorious as all other Italian churches but no less characteristic. The Holy door I find to be incredibly beautiful.

This Basilica is one of the four major Basilica of Rome. The metro makes it easy to reach. There is a good snack shop next door.

It's a long walk to get round to the entrance, but very impressive once you're inside. You could just about fit a full size football pitch into the aisle before reaching the tomb of Saint Paul.
