How much does it cost to enter the Vatican?

While entry to the Vatican City is free, you will need to purchase tickets to visit certain attractions, such as the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Dome. Additionally, a ticket is required for entry to the Vatican Museums. So, while you can wander around St. Peter's Square and Basilica without paying, you'll need to purchase tickets to fully experience everything the Vatican has to offer.

Is entry to Vatican City free?

Vatican City has free entry, but visiting its attractions comes with an additional cost. If you're visiting at the right time, you can use the benefit of the last Sunday of the month when visiting the museums, and other sites that usually come at a certain cost are free of charge. This option is available from 9 am to 2 pm.

Is there a ticket to enter Vatican City?

There is no ticket to enter Vatican City. But we do recommend you check out our guided tours of the Vatican or our exclusive skip the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel line ticket.

Is it cheaper to buy Vatican tickets online?

Tickets for the Vatican Museums can be purchased either in person or online. While purchasing tickets in person is cheaper than buying them online, it does require standing in line and risking the possibility of not gaining entrance into the Museums and Sistine Chapel.

It's up to you to decide which option suits your needs best.

I booked a priority entrance ticket last week, and it was a wonderful experience.Even during the off-season, the lines were long to get in, but luckily, we had this priority entrance ticket and we were able to enter the site immediately. We saw some of the most beautiful works of art inside the Vatican Museums. Well worth the expense and is one of the must-see attractions in Rome!


Beautiful experience!

Beautiful experience, with quick entry and no queues. The rooms of the Museum of Vatican are rich in history and works of exceptional artistic value. Admiring the Sistine Chapel leaves you breathless. I really recommend to anyone visiting Rome to dedicate a few hours to this tour.
