Early Bird Sistine Chapel Ticket

With this ticket you'll get access to the Sixtine Chapel first thing in the morning, avoiding all the crowds. Then you can enjoy the other Vatican Museums at your leisure!

Early Bird Sistine Chapel Ticket

The tour meets at 7:20 in front of the main entrance to the Vatican Museums. An English speaking escort will lead you inside, and thanks to your early bird access you'll enter the museums 30 minutes before the group tours for the general public begin.  

Once inside your escort will take you directly to the Sistine Chapel: Michelangelo's masterpiece where the Pope himself is elected, and without the crowds!

You'll have until 8:20 am to enjoy the Sixtine Chapel at your own pace. Its decoration - as well as the world-famous Creation of Adam and Last Judgement by Michelangelo, includes the Temptations of Christ by Sandro Botticelli and the Last Supper by Rosselli.

Then you can visit the rest of the Vatican Museums at your own pace, until they close - enjoying their stunning permanent collection. The Rafael hall, Maps area, and Pío-Clementino museum - home to the famous statue of Laocoön and His Sons.
