The ticket office was difficult to find. We wandered for about fifteen minutes trying to find the place. Once we arrived, the guy behind the desk didn’t greet me or anything. Just said “do you have a reservation”. Yes i do. I showed him the reservation online. He then said

Fantastic experience! The museum was a pure joy to walk through - the staff and security were very kind and the artefacts displayed were phenomenal! Not to mention the absolute beauty of the Sistine Chapel - it was an absolute dream to see it live in the flesh!

Dear Customer, Thanks for your review. You have booked the skip-the-line ticket to Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel and you have received via mail just a voucher for reservation. It's clearly written you need to go to the meeting point before the entrance to get the ticket. Unfortunately you can only be 5 minutes late, otherwise at the Vatican entrance they deny you access. We are happy you enjoyed the visit to the Museums and Sistine Chapel, very beautiful and interesting. We hope to have a second chance for your next trip in Rome. Warm regards

Maybe this was my fault. I thought I’d booked a tour. In fact I’d paid to meet at an office to Walk to the front of the queue and to then be left to our own devices. In peak season in a normal this might be worth paying more than doubt the usual entry fee for. In covid with no

Exactly as expected. We were able to skip the line (although it wasn’t particularly long due to the COVID-19 pandemic) and get our tickets to walk around at our own pace. If you are in Rome for a short time and want to make the most of it, I recommend spending the extra money
