We visited the Vatican museums. Considering the particular weekend we proceeded to purchase 5 tickets about a month before. We showed up at the indicated place, they gave us a bottle of water, and put a sticker on the chest to identify us. Together with an assistant we entered the line of groups skipping the kilometric lines, they replaced the tickets for us and we entered immediately. All flawless, considering that in 10 minutes we were already at the entrance turnstiles. An additional 15 euros well spent to skip the entrance line. It is worth it !!!

Very easy to locate our meeting spot and everyone was very helpful. The line to purchase tickets was extremely long and with the heatwave going through Rome in July it was definitely worth every penny to purchase the Skip-the-Line Tickets. We would not hesitate to purchase them again, even without a huge line and heat. Very organized and easy to get through with the freedom of walking the Chapel and Museums at your own leisure.

We opted to upgrade to the audio guide and we would highly recommend that. You can do that once you’re there. The museum has great information and take a lot of time. The Sistine Chapel was off the charts! No pictures allowed in there and also be aware of the dress code. It’s a holy place and silence is a must. The Tourist station you check in at is a pink house opposite side of the museum.

A bit difficult to find the ticket office to exchange the voucher for tickets, but it worked out fine. Worth not waiting on extra lines. Security is long enough. The Vatican museum is huge and well worth the visit. The actual Sistine Chapel part was a bit crowded and the attendants were rather rude. Yes, it is a sacred place, but shouting ""silence"" was a bit off putting overall.

I did not have an option to buy tickets directly for the day and time that I wanted to visit. The process was simple. Met at their office which it is located a few steps from the Vatican. We walked to the entrance, we were handed our tickets, and off we went on our own at our own pace. We loved it. Some people may want the guided tours.

This was a great tour. The guide was knowledgeable but it was rushed because of everything we were trying to see. I wish it was a bit longer and that we could have looked around more. The guide knew what she was talking about and she did a great job. I just wish it was a bit longer so that we could have seen more!!

Too many too many people, but at least we skipped the worst row. They are well organized and there is a real need, but some patience is required anyway. the museums are beautiful, art and history and wonder ... just a pity that with so many people it becomes more difficult to enjoy them

The security was extremely unfriendly except one guy, who was helpful and kind. It's a little bit unfair to pay a huge amount for have no permission to take one photo from Sistine Chapel, but it's beautiful and woth the stress, money and time what we spent there.

We were able to get right into the Vatican. We used the Rick Steeve's app (which is free to download) and took the self guided tour of the Vatican. We were late because of Uber issues and they were able to help us get into a later group. Very accommodating.

We met our host at the designated meeting place, she walked us to the entrance, gave us our tickets and a little information and let us be on our way. We are not much for large tour groups, we like to wander at our own pace so this was perfect for us!

Redeem your voucher at the activity provider's office. Be taken by their staff to the Vatican Museums to get your official reserved ticket. Enjoy exploring at your own pace. Admire the immense art collection amassed by the Catholic Church, including Roman sculptures and Renaissance masterpieces.

Visit the Sistine Chapel. 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. See what it takes to create a fresco and appreciate the work up close.
