Free entrance to Vatican Museums

Italy Rome (Italy)

Free entrance to Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel.

 

Few people know that you can get free entry to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. In fact, for one day a month, the magnificent Vatican Museums offer the chance to visit for free their rooms and, of course, the Sistine Chapel.
The day when you can visit for free the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel is the last Sunday of each month. The hours are from 9 am to 12.30 pm with closing at 2pm.

This year on the occasion of World Tourism Day, September 27, 2013 the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel will be open free from 9 to 18 with last admission at 4pm.

This is an excellent opportunity to visit for free one of the most important museum complexes in the world.
Since the row to access the museums could be quite long, we recommend you arrive at the entrance at 8:30.
