* SKIP THE LINE TICKETS TO COLOSSEUM, VATICAN MUSEUMS & SISTINE CHAPEL : We offer the possibility of reserving skip the line tickets directly during the booking process. That way, everything will be taken care of.
As an alternative, you can find the tickets on the official websites of Colosseum and Vatican Museums. Reserve the Colosseum entrance for 10:00am, and the Vatican entrance for 1:00pm. Also, to enter Saint Peter’s Basilica from inside the Vatican (without having to exit and go all the way around), there is a very small fee to pay, at the entrance. Our skip the line tickets already include this special pass, so you won’t have to worry about that, if you choose to book the tickets through us.
PLEASE NOTE: the Vatican museum & Sistine chapel are closed on Sundays (except the last Sunday of the month). In this last circumstance the Vatican does not allow any pre -reserved entrance tickets on the last Sunday of every month as it is free to enter and therefore, you may have to wait in long line.
*The Vatican is closed on certain Catholic festivities, but it could close unexpectedly for unforeseen reasons. In which case, we will make all the necessary changes and plan the itinerary accordingly.
