Vatican Skip the Line & Sightseeing Hop on Hop Off Bus Tour
With the skip-the-line tickets to the Vatican Museums, you can go past the long queues that are common outside. You can use this precious time to explore the artistic collections and appreciate the incredible skill of the artists. Enter the illustrious Sistine Chapel, trail your eyes along the ceiling and watch Michelangelo’s work come to life. Considered one of the greatest examples of Renaissance art, along with the Last Judgment on the wall, the Creation of Adam, which depicts God nearly touching hands with Adam is one of the most iconic images in the world, rivalled only perhaps by the Mona Lisa. The fresco is almost 19-feet long, and witnessing it in person is a spectacular experience.
After a tour of the Vatican Museums, you can enjoy a ride around town on the Hop-On, Hop-Off double-decker buses. Your Hop-On, Hop-Off tickets let you board and get off at any of the stops on the route as often as you like! You will have the chance to explore each of the attractions on the route at your own pace and, with numerous bus stops present around town and buses departing every 10-15 minutes, you'll never have to wait too long. Conveniently explore major sightseeing attractions such as the Colosseum, Piazza di Spagna, Piazza Barberini, Piazza Venezia, Circo Massimo, and The Vatican. From the comfort of your seat atop the open deck bus, you’ll get endless panoramic views and photo ops of Rome’s top attractions. You can choose between a 24 and 48-hour ticket, depending on how much time you have and whichever pass suits your needs better.
