What can I expect?
Looking to maximize your trip to the Vatican? Choosing a ticket that lets you skip the lines—which can be hours long—is a no-brainer. But it can be frustrating to skip the lines only to realize you have no idea how to spend your time inside, or to find yourself on a tour that skips pieces of information that interest you!
Enter The Vatican Quest. This primer on the Vatican is written by the best-known Vatican guide in recent history,. It will help you decipher hidden messages in the paintings and find fascinating signs in other artworks. You'll receive the Vatican Quest before your trip, so you can even prep in advance if you wish! You can either print it out or simply read it from your phone.
Because the Vatican Quest is a self-guided tour, you're never stuck in one room for a specific amount of time; you can linger when you want to linger and rush through when you want to rush. You can spend all day in the Vatican if you'd like. The guide will let you truly customize your visit, so that you can devote your time to exploring the art and architecture that most appeals to you.
