What is the difference between Faster Than Skip the Line, VIP Skip the Line, and Skip the Line tickets?
  • Faster Than Skip the Line, No-Wait, and VIP Skip the Line tickets mean the same thing. It gives you access to the Vatican Museums through a dedicated entrance. This means the waiting time is significantly shorter since the only thing you'll wait for is the security check.

    Skip The Line tickets refer to pre-booked tickets so you'll avoid waiting in queues to buy tickets on-site. However, you will still have to pass through the line the general public has to go through plus the security check.
Can I take photos during my Vatican visit?
  • Non-flash photography is permitted in most areas of the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica. But, photography of any kind is not allowed inside the Sistine Chapel.
What should I wear on my Vatican visit?
  • Men, women, and children must have their shoulders and knees covered at all times. Low-cut clothing and hats are not allowed.
Can I bring a backpack to the Vatican Museums?
  • Yes, guests can carry bags if they are smaller than 40cm length x 35cm width x 15cm depth. Anything bigger than this, or any umbrellas or camera tripods, must be checked into storage at the beginning of the tour.

    Since the tour ends at the other side of the museum, guests who are forced to check bags must leave the tour early to collect them or complete a 20-minute walk back to the entrance after their tour. Those doing the afternoon tour may not be able to retrieve their belongings until the next day. It is recommended that visitors travel light and avoid bringing large baggage.
What is the best time to visit the Vatican?
  • If you want to avoid the crowds, go really early or really late. There are tours on VELTRA that provide access to the Sistine Chapel before it opens to the public and to the Vatican Museums after its operating hours.
