Where and how to buy tickets for the Vatican Museums?

The Vatican Museums have an efficient sales system and pre-ticket sales. That essentially have two choices: you can buy it on the spot, or pre-book them on the Internet on the official website of the Vatican Museumshttp://biglietteriamusei.vatican.va/musei/tickets/index.html

Before you rush to the site, please keep in mind that both solutions have their advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, by purchasing tickets on the spot you are more free to reschedule, move or cancel your visit. On the other hand, it must be said that pre-purchase tickets will easily overcome the problem of long queues (sometimes more than an hour!) that have for you an annoying waste of time (and boredom, if you are with children and older people).

If you decide to pre-purchase tickets, though, weigh up the times: you have to book very broad advance, expecially if you plan to visit the Vatican museums during peak season. Skip the line Tickets purchased by the Vatican website are available in limited numbers.

If you book your tickets online, the system will send you a coupon that is not the real card but a voucher to present to the speakers for the actual withdrawal. We forgot the third option: Vatican Tickets can be purchased by you from the authorized Travel Agencies.

What is the cost of the admission ticket to the Vatican Museums?

But this luxury of skip-the-line has its price. That is, the only full entry ticket would cost € 16.00, but if you buy your ticket on-line you need to add the booking fee, then we go up to € 16.00+ € 4.00 per person, ie, € 20.00 per person. But these moneys are well spent, expecially at busy periods.

Given that this is the price, beware of those who try to sell you the entrance tickets to the Vatican Museums in prices that can not be verified, or appointments behind the closure of museums: There are input shifts to book Vatican Museums tickets, and the last is at 15:00 (maybe there is a mischievous attempt to take advantage of the short time line, about to close, to sell tickets that are not booked electronically!)

The Vatican Museums ticket includes a visit to the Sistine Chapel?

Yes, the ticket entitles you to visit the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel (only for the day of issue).
