Discover one of the world's top art collections at the Vatican Museums at your own pace
Marvel at Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel
What to expect
Take in the highlights of the Vatican Museums, from the Sistine Chapel to lesser-known gems of the collection. Visit the Hall of Maps, the Pinecone Courtyard, the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Candelabra and the incredible Raphael Rooms.
A definite highlight of your visit is the Sistine Chapel. Take some time to admire the details you have heard about, including Michelangelo’s boneless self-portrait, in which he expresses to the world that he would rather be skinned alive than paint the Sistine Chapel again! As impressive as his work is, you’ll appreciate it even more up close, and after you’ve seen what it takes to create a fresco.
Redeem your voucher at the Touristation office, the staff will then accompany you into the Museums to get your official reserved ticket.
