Know More about this tour

The Vatican Museums are a must-see for all the tourists who come to Rome, which is why the line to these museums can be long at times. Skip the line and gain direct access to one of the world's most important museums, containing a vast collection - including many masterpieces dating from antiquity to the present day with this Vatican Museums Skip The Line Ticket.

Meet your tour representative across the street from the museum entrance. Pass through metal detectors at the security checkpoint and get escorted inside Vatican city where you'll receive your entrance tickets.

After the security check, you'll be escorted to the ticket barrier. From that point on, you'll be left to explore the second largest museum in the world at your own pace. Should you decide to purchase an official audio guide for your tour, you can do that before passing through the gate. The audio guides are available in 10 languages (Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Portuguese).

Since you do not have a tour guide, you can design your visit according to your own wish and interest. Choose between Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Contemporary art, or even go for them all- you can stay inside the museum for as long as you like. Do not miss the marvelous Raphael Rooms and, of course, Michelangelo's never-surpassed frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. Admire a vast collection of ancient sculptures, breathtaking tapestries, and Renaissance paintings. You can also opt to enjoy a coffee break (at your own expense) in the Belvedere Courtyard.

    We met our "skip the line" woman at a cafe. She was very nice and on time. Would definitely recommend!

    The "Meet and Greet" for the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel was excellent. The guide met us at the designated place and took us through the process of "skipping the line" at the Museum. She made sure we all got in as expeditiously as possible.

    Met a pleasant woman at a Cafe where she then walked us right into the Vatican Museum, provided us with a map and tickets and answered all our questions. This is a TRUE skip the line self guided tour. Beware some of the other skip the line tours still have you standing in long lines.

    I studied all of what I was going to see at the Vatican, so I didn’t want/need a tour guide. For those who want to see the Vatican on their own and at their own pace - this is definitely for you. We met at a nearby cafe and was led directly in to the Vatican in front of the large, large line. Once inside, we were free to tour on our own. Perfect for me!

    Our meet and greet host was on time and exactly where I was told to be. The entire process was effortless and saved me from not only the long lines but also from having to navigate the busy and confusing entrance/ticketing pavilion at the Vatican Museums! She escorted me and another couple from our designated meeting spot outside a nearby cafe (very easy to find and had a delicious, cheap lunch there before our meeting time), past the line, thru security and into the pavilion. From there she had us wait while she retrieved our entrance tickets, gave us a brief orientation to the museums and sent us in! I didn't have a lot of time to devote to seeing the Museums so I was hoping this would prove to be a way to jump right in and I was 100% correct. Best Decision Ever! Our host was polite, spoke good English and thoroughly communicated everything we needed to know before starting our self tour of the museums. 100% recommend for anyone on a tight schedule!

    The day we arrived at the Vatican Museum (in late April) it was extremely busy with very long lines of people waiting to buy tickets. The guide took us straight through the entry point inside the Vatican Museums. We didn't have a lot of time and never would have made it without the tickets. The guide was professional and spoke perfect English.

    Our guide met us at the allotted time and was extremely helpful. She gave us some good tips and got us straight through security and into the museum. Highly recommend.

    Thanks to Simone and her wise advice, we managed to do the whole Vatican-Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter Basilica. After a lot of thinking, we opted for the meet and greet service. so we could do the whole thing at our own tempo. best decision ever! Simone met us right on time, in the agreed place and took us through the madness of the security and entrance of the Vatican museum.... once inside, she explained to us very clearly how to navigate inside, what was important... gave us valuable tips that help us to get the most out of our time.. we recommend this service 100%!

    The lines at the vatican are LONG- being able to avoid the lines and go right in via VIATOR is so worth it!! Very easy process!

  • 02-Sep-2018

    The Greeter was very curtious and professional. It was great being able to go at your own pace, but we wish we would have got the Audioguides to give us a little more information on what we were seeing. Was going to ask if there was a drop off point for the Audioguides when you go to the Sistine Chapel, but didn't. Hopefully for anyone else, there is. Otherwise it was excellent. no problems with meeting the Greeter, just down the street from entrance.
