About the Show & Go™

Our exclusive pass lets you Tour the Vatican’s famous museums whenever you want without the need to book in advance. Save hours by skipping the long entrance lineups to these remarkable Vatican City destinations:

  • The Vatican Museum: Stroll through galleries filled with ancient sculptures, tapestries, maps and Etruscan antiquities as you take in the history and art of the smallest state in the world.
  • The Sistine Chapel: You’ll be surrounded by Michelangelo’s world-famous frescoes — including the famous nine central panels of the Sistine Chapel ceiling, each depicting a scene from Genesis (the most famous being The Creation of Adam).
  • St. Peter’s Basilica (self guided): Experience one of the world’s largest churches and one of the most sacred Catholic sites. Roam its chapels at your leisure and marvel at the elaborately painted, multi-domed ceiling and Michelangelo’s legendary Pietà—an evocative sculpture of the Virgin Mary cradling her dying son.
