The Vatican can often sell out in advance due to it being so popular with visitors to Rome. You may find it difficult to find the date you want or you may get frustrated by some of the websites. You can ensure a seamless and more efficient booking experience with the Offical Vatican Partner that has the highest possible status.

No One Gets You in Faster

Once you book your tickets with us you will receive our official Partner voucher. This can be exchanged at our meeting place outside the Vatican Museum. Simply meet the City Wonders representative who’ll be waiting for you. They will take you past the lines that stretch along the streets and straight inside the Vatican via our private Partner Entrance. We will also provide you with a map of the museums and a succinct synopsis of how to find the must-see attractions. Once you get your bearings it is time to head off on your solo tour.

No One Gives You More Access

For a small additional cost, you can upgrade your ticket (and your visit) to experience our top-rated Early Access Tour. One of our expert English-speaking guides will help you explore the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica. Along the way, they will share curious facts and stories about the masterpieces and the famous names who produced them. In a small group of fewer than 20 people, you’ll be able to indulge your curiosity with your guide. This group tour also includes Skip-the-Line Access to St. Peter’s Basilica which is not available with individual Museum tickets.
