Easy to directions to Vatican on voucher. Great queue jump. No issues.

Jen & John

I booked the ticket to visit the vatican as I wanted to walk around the vatican at my own pace, it is very convenient to pre-book ...it as when I arrived at the entrance of the Vatican Museum I have seen a very very long queue just to buy the tickets, I am not sure how long it took to each person standing there, to buy it.Once you have your pre-booked ticket you can just show you voucher or even mobile phone voucher to the custodian on the right side of the entrance, they will scan it and let you in, that was very fast. Than I got inside and queued for few minutes maybe 5mins for the security check, it is kind of airport style security, once inside I followed the instruction on my voucher and went to collect my ticket, even this took me 5 minutes, just make sure not to stand behind someone is not queueing but just wondering around! as I have also pre-booked my audioguide at the ticket office they told me to go on the second floor to collect it, even this action didn't take that long maybe other 5 minutes and finally I could see the vatican, it was impressive! any room is decorated with fresco or mosaics, statue and you can't get enough of it. Using the audioguide I was able to listen to the different explanations. It was crowded, but as I was walking by myself I could just stop and continue anytime I wanted so it was a pleasant visit. I stay in each room as long as I wanted and than I moved in the outside space and rested for a bit. Everytime I soacked up enough information I moved to the other room. The final one before going out was the Sistine Chapel, that is the most amazing masterpiece I have ever seen, I sat down and spent almost 30minutes wondering at it. Than I went out from the main exit.

Perfect solution to save time and enjoy the museum at its full.
The only line was at security check and, maybe at the audio...
guide counter, besides that the visit went smoothly despite the crowd and couldn't believe my eyes I had so many artworks in front of me perfectly explained by the audio-guide!
Definitely need to go back there soon, there's still a lot to see!

Seeing the long line to the Vatican Museums on the day of our visit, we were so glad we booked our tickets with reserved entry! Sa...ved so much time and were able to enter the museum smoothly. Great value for money, the art and Sistine Chapel were amazing - definitely a must when in Rome! more

Mon

The museums where huge & we walked several times around the first section of the museum till we figured out how to progress. T...he map was no help at all. None-the-less, the Sistine chapel was stunning, though the lighting was very weak & the room packed with people. more
