Avoid the long ticket lines and then enjoy your visit at your own pace.  Tiptoe through the Greek Cross Gallery to see elaborately-carved sarcophagi that might just contain the earthly remains of some of antiquity's famous kings and queens! Peek at the Cabinet of the Masks, or tour the Sala degli Animali to see a virtual menagerie of fantastic beasts, real and imagined. Walk the Upper Galleries, including the Gallery of Maps, to see how cartographers depicted the world through the ages.

    Nice tour despite the amusement park-like herding of people through the museum. Guards were a bit rude to visitors. Didn't like that if you missed seeing something the guards wouldn't let you retreat to look again. The tour itself was beautiful!

The tour with Chiara absolutely amazing. We had a small group. No lines at the Basilica or Museum with the 8am tour. Definitely wear good walking shoes. Our guide Chiara (when in Rome Tours) was such a great guide. Very interacting and so very knowledgeable, funny and great energy. Personalized our tour so we could get to the most important stops in an efficient manner. Made sure everyone’s needs were met along the way. She offered to take photos of each person/couple at the best spots! She was interested in each person/couple. Asked where we were going next so she could recommend activities/restaurants.

We were able to get tickets much earlier than the earliest slot on the Vatican museum website ... We were able to quickly go in , show our number in the app to the guy at the reservation window, who then gave us tickets to use in the turnstile to get into the main part of the museum. We were able to tour on our own which is exactly what we wanted to do. Thanks.

Amazing service. This is the kind of company and people you wish to find when you are visiting a city for the first time. Dario and Mary made our experience even better. Even after the vaticano tour with Mrs Mary (which was absolutely perfect, Mr. Dario kept helping us through what's up.. 5 stars

Excellent historical knowledge was conveyed in a personable and understandable way. We were very satisfied and can only recommend our guide A. Schröder. Good job Sven Richter

Much easier and quicker to get in with this ticket.
