  • Save hours of waiting with a skip-the-line admission ticket to the Vatican in Rome
  • A great choice for first-time visitors and travelers that prefer to explore independently
  • Explore one of Europe's top attractions at your own pace
  • Choose from several departure times and upgrade to include a guided tour

Tour operator on time....

Tour operator on time. Guide was more interested in passing the information than the time frame allocated even with time exceeded, the guide was more concerned about emphasizing the interesting artifacts in the Museums and Sistine Chapel

Excellent guide who is willing to help Rome travellers!

Since it was our first time driving in Rome, we got into traffic and was 20-minute late. Paolo was our guide, holding our Vatican Museum tickets. He was willing to wait for us. and even let us use his street parking spot for our car, so we would not waste more time finding parking. He took us inside the museum and gave us a brief introduction. 5-star customer service! Much recommended!

My guide, Marle Robinson, is amazing. She introduced me to the history, composition, and iconography of some of the greatest masterpieces of the world, as well as Saint Peter’s Basilica and dome, the Colosseum, and the Forum.

Cosimo was very friendly...

Cosimo was very friendly and had in-depth knowledge about the collections at the Vatican Museum. The weather was horrible but he found a spot for us to wait that was covered. He was also very attentive to his clients and called those who were running behind to make sure they could find the spot. He asked us if it was okay to give them a few minutes (which was fine for us) and I thought that was very considerate when taking into account the rain and tourism. Overall, a great experience and well worth it.
