To book this tour, please follow these steps:

 

1. Fill out this form: www.jw-rometours.com/book-now.php and we will let you know the available times and dates for this guided group tour.

 

2. After the date of your tour is confirmed, you will need to purchase your entry tickets to the Vatican Museums (always not refundable) for your confirmed tour date/time, from the Vatican Museums’ website (21 euro per person) (link below):

The entry tickets can be purchased 60 days before your scheduled tour.

Please set a reminder to purchase these tickets as they are likely to SELL OUT within a few days!

These are the cheapest entry tickets available.

3. If the above site is sold out, you can try this second option: (price is from 26 to 32 euro per person)

https://www.getyourguide.com/musei-vaticani-l2738/evita-la-coda-musei-vaticani-e-cappell a-sistina-t62214/

 

4. If both the websites are sold out, you can purchase your entry tickets directly at the Vatican Museums by standing in the line-up for people without reservations (allow at least 30-60 minutes for the line-up).

While you are waiting in line, you will be approached by people with official identification tags that will try to sell you tickets and guided tours at twice the actual price! It is best to ignore them and go straight to the cash desk INSIDE THE VATICAN MUSEUMS - our Tour Guide will purchase the tickets directly with you, and you will join our Bible Tour group.

We don't recommend that you use other websites to purchase your Vatican Museum entry tickets.

These other sites, even if licensed, are not always secure and the mark-up on tickets can be very high (basic ticket price is 21 euros).

 

5. Once you have purchased your Vatican Museums entry tickets, please submit 50% of the tour price as your deposit via Paypal or Transferwise to confirm your tour with us.
