When in Rome, bask in the splendor of Renaissance greats. Avoid the winding queues and get priority entry to two of the most iconic museums in the world: The Vatican Museums as well as the Borghese Gallery and Museum!
The Vatican Museums
Travel back in time and experience art and religious history with skip-the-ticket-line entry to the Vatican Museums. Explore at your own pace the Greek Cross Gallery, where you can spot intricately carved sarcophagi, browse through the Cabinet of the Masks, or see the Sala degli Animali - a virtual menagerie of fantastic beasts, real and imagined. Don't miss out on seeing the Gallery of Maps, to discover how cartographers depicted the world through the ages. While you're at it, treat your eyes to stunning masterpieces by Renaissance masters in the Raphael Rooms. Then, it’s time to admire Michelangelo’s beautiful Sistine Chapel, the crown jewel of the Vatican, and considered to be a cornerstone of western art. The Last Judgement covers the wall behind the altar and is probably the most famous single work of art in the Sistine Chapel. Please note: Entry to the museums is by obligatory online booking.
Borghese Gallery and Museum
One of the most exhausting aspects of exploring a new place as a tourist is undoubtedly the queues. Fortunately, with these skip-the-line tickets, you get to avoid all that bustle and stroll around at your own pace. The Borghese Gallery is located in what used to be the Villa Borghese Pinciana. The building of the gallery was added in with the gardens around it at first. The gardens, however, have become a separate attraction for tourists by themselves. With fountains, gardens, pink marble walls, and frescoed ceilings, the Borghese Gallery and Museum is a fitting place to house some of the world's greatest artworks. Find here everything from sculptures by Bernini and Canova, to paintings by Caravaggio, Raphael, and Titian amongst others.
