How Far in Advance Can I Book Vatican Tickets?


With millions of tourists visiting each year, it’s essential to plan ahead to ensure a smooth trip – and that means knowing how far in advance to book Vatican tickets.

In this short blog post, I’ll provide you with information on how early you can book Vatican tickets and offer some helpful tips for your Vatican visit.

How Early Can I Book Vatican Museum Tickets?

The Vatican Museum typically allows visitors to book tickets online up to 60 days in advance.

In other words, you can secure your tickets for a specific date and entry time up to two months before your planned visit.

As I mentioned in my post on where to buy Vatican Museum tickets, booking in advance is highly recommended, especially during the busy summer months when ticket window lines can take hours.

It’s important to note that availability for popular dates and times, such as weekends or early morning slots, can fill up quickly, especially during peak tourist seasons.

If you have a specific date or time in mind, it’s best to book as early as possible using the button below:
