cancellation policy

These tickets can't be cancelled or rescheduled.

As one of the most sought-after attractions in Rome, the Vatican attracts hordes of visitors. With reserved entry tickets, you can be sure you won't be spending your vacation time in the waiting queues. The Vatican Gardens (also Giardini Vaticani) is a green oasis renowned as the pope’s personal garden where he returns to relax and unwind. They cover one-third of Vatican City's 44 hectares. Since 2014, visitors are invited to relish in the same exquisite scenery that was once exclusively available to popes of the past.

At the meeting point, you will receive assistance to board the minibus, after which you can admire the amazing manicured lawns, fountains, sculptures, and buildings. The Fontana dell'Aquilone and Fontana della Galera are among the most striking fountains you will find in the whole garden. Moreover, the historic building of the Governor’s Palace stands out among tourists due to its imposing structure. You can spend some time visiting the Grotta di Lourdes, an artificial cave designed to replicate its famous namesake in France. Another monument to surely catch your attention is the Casino of Pius IV, a 16th-century summer house designed by Pirro Ligorio.

With your ticket, you can also visit the lavish interiors of the Vatican Museum. It boasts one of the most impressive art collections in the world. Lastly, do not leave without seeing Michelangelo’s revered frescoes adorning the ceilings of the Sistine Chapel.

The site was difficult to find and the staff were not well informed - a lot of time was wasted finding the location for departure.

I had 2 tickets to the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Gardens, for which I paid €108. We showed up at the meeting point at 12 noon and no one from your company was ever present at any time, we also went to the white tent, as indicated in the email and the security guards tried to scan the barcode and told us that they were not valid, that we should try to communicate with your company, which was impossible by phone or any other way. There was also another family that had the same problem as us, their reservation number was 14042005, under the name of Rapcea Romulus Petre (2 adults + 1 child). We all had to buy new tickets to get in.

Casi me causa el divorcio, estuvimos dando vueltas porque de la carpa blanca nos mandaban a la otra punta y así sucesivamente durante media hora, tantas vueltas dimos que acabamos en un hostal a la vuelta del Vaticano... Decidimos volver a la carpa blanca y preguntar allí, nos dijeron que la agencia con la que habíamos reservado estaba dando problemas desde dos semanas antes, probamos a entrar y entramos pero pusieron "caras" tanto en la entrada los de seguridad como en información, nos dieron unos tiquet, fuimos al miniautobus después de que la guía nos contase 40 veces porque tenía dos personas de más (nosotros...fijo) la vuelta en autobús muy amena, pero al bajarnos no había ni guía ni nadie y estuvimos todo los que estábamos en el autobús desconcertados, decidimos hacer la ruta por libre ya que no había explicación alguna, después de pasar por unas cuantas salas muy interesantes decidimos tomar algo en el bar de unos jardines (4€por una Coca-Cola sin hilos y de botella es un poco robo y aún más cutre) Continuamos con la excursión muy a nuestro pesar porque ya a esas alturas estábamos reventados (aún así conseguimos terminarla) esperando al final que nos diesen la Compostela porque hicimos más kilómetros que en tres días de camino de Santiago!

We didn't get the tickets in time (we get a wrong download link), so we couldn't get in and missed the bus tour we payed for. All the other bus tour was full so we didn't fit anywhere else. The support team was very helpful tho, but the ticket system is not working well.
