I booked the visit to the Vatican museums for the first week of January. I found myself very well. With the skip the line we were able to enter immediately without queuing at the ticket office. Withdrew the audio guides we were able to immerse ourselves in the beauties of the museums and the Sistine chapel. Great experience, I recommend it.

In my opinion it was the best choice. It was very easy to find the entrance and the headset. I suggest you to bring your own earphones because the divice its like a cellphone and the earphones are not included. It was very easy to use and you just need to enter the number on the device which is showned next to the exhibit for more details.

It is difficult to leave this chapel where our eyes try to imprint on our brain all the marvelous compositions of Michelangelo. And the paintings are always very fresh. A splendor

Booked visit to the Vatican Museums with "Saltacoda", everything according to the program, streamlined and fast access.

Host was very clear and friendly. Made the process easy.
