No Vatican tour is complete without a visit to the Vatican Museums. As home of popes' impressive art collection, the galleries include the finest works from the Renaissance with the Sistine Chapel painting by Michelangelo as the crown jewel. Cut queues with an after-hours Vatican Museums tour and uncover the history of the artworks with help from a licensed guide. Or opt for skip-the-line Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums tickets to take in the sight of the masterpieces on your own pace.
Things to Know:
- The Sistine Chapel is actually a part of the Vatican Museums. Unless stated otherwise, most Sistine Chapel tours include a visit to the rest of the Vatican Museums as well.
- Unlike access to other museums and galleries, Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel tickets do not have a time limit. You can take time to admire the works of art and stay until closing time.
- While the Vatican Museums are famous for housing works by Michelangelo and Raphael, you can also see its only Leonardo da Vinci piece titled St Jerome at The Pinacoteca
