When to Get There


The Vatican Museums complex is adjacent to St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City. The Ottaviano station, on Metro Line A, is approximately a five-minute walk away. The Vatican sees crowds of travelers year-round. It is fullest in summer when skip-the-line tickets or a private tour guide are necessary; the museums are moderately less crowded during winter. At any time of year, the museums are utmostly crowded at midday, so wish to visit in the early morning or late afternoon if you’re considering for a quieter experience.

What Not To Miss at Vatican Museums


The Vatican is the most popular attraction in Rome, hosting millions of visitors each year. Enjoy an exclusive, small group guided tour of the Vatican Museums, with a maximum of 12 guests per guide for a more intimate experience. There is a tremendous amount to take in here, so if you are visiting Vatican city as a family with young children who may get overwhelmed, consider a guided kid-friendly tour that focuses on the Vatican highlights not on Vatican museum price.
