What ticket do I need for the Vatican?

You will need an entry ticket for the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. You can visit St. Peter's Basilica for free, but if you want to learn more about the history of the Catholic church and climb up to the top of the dome, we highly recommend booking a St. Peter's Basilica Guided Tour.

Can you enter Vatican Museum for free?
