Did you know that every last Sunday of the month Vatican Museums are free?!

The Vatican Museums are a popular tourist destination, and the admission fees can be quite steep.

This is a fantastic opportunity to explore the museums without breaking the bank.

To make the most of your free admission to the Vatican Museums, it’s important to plan your visit in advance. The museums can be crowded, so it’s best to arrive early in the morning to avoid long lines. You may also want to consider purchasing a guidebook or hiring a local guide to help you navigate the museums and learn more about the exhibits.

The free entrance time is: 9:00 – 12:30 closing 14:00. There is also possibility of guided tours upon reservation.

While you’re at the Vatican Museums, don’t forget to visit the Sistine Chapel. This famous chapel is home to Michelangelo’s masterpiece, the ceiling fresco, and The Last Judgment. The Sistine Chapel is a must-see for anyone visiting the Vatican Museums.

Another tip for expats visiting the Vatican Museums is to take advantage of the audio guide. The audio guide provides an informative tour of the museums and gives you a deeper understanding of the history and significance of each exhibit.
