Thursday, August 7th, 2014

The Vatican is one of the city’s main attractions with ticket prices costing around 16 Euros per person. There are reduced entry prices for advance bookings, group bookings and guided tour reservations. It’s also worth browsing online to find a guide to Vatican City discount deals and vouchers.

Ticket Prices

Ticket prices for entering the Vatican’s museums can cost less during off peak seasons. Prices can be significantly reduced during the winter months when there are less tourists around. Beat the queues by booking in advance. You will have more time to enjoy what the Vatican has to offer, so make enquiries today about online tour reservations.

Practical Info

Vatican museums are generally open from 9.00 6.00 p.m., but you are allowed to enter only until 4.00 p.m. Metro A is probably the quickest way to get there, however there is also public bus transport or tram n. 19 which will take a little longer.

Get the most out of your visit

The Vatican is so large that it’s best to arrange a guided tour which can be booked online in advance. You won’t want to miss out on St Peter’s Basilica, the historical and art museums, the Vatican Grottoes or of course a visit to The Dome. Make sure you see the Tomb of St Peter and the Pre-Constantinian Necropolis.

Enjoy your Italy Vacation

To make the most of your stay in Rome, buy tickets to see the Catacombs of San Callisto, the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and Ostia Antica. For something a little different visit Hadrian’s Villa, one of Rome’s most famous Emperor’s private residences. Have your camera ready to take photographs of this magnificently preserved Roman villa.

If you want to experience Rome in all of its glory buy tickets for the Vatican well in advance of your vacation. Proper dress is required when visiting the Basilica, Dome, museums and Vatican Grotto, after all you don’t want to look out of place.
