HOW DOES IT
It’s so simple. You just need to pick the dates and times for each of the attractions and Tiqets will email all your tickets over ready for your trip. You can print them off at home (or just show them on your smartphone when you get there). Then all you have to do is show up at the right place at the right time.
You’ll get priority entry, leaving you even more time to enjoy on your holiday.
* Entry to Saint Peter’s Basilica is actually free. But people sometimes end up having to wait up to an hour and a half thanks to the massive crowds and the security checks. That’s why Tiqets combines priority entry with the guided tour.
** You may find that the prices through Tiqets are higher than the prices offered at the attractions on the day. But remember: You’ll end up having to stand in (very) long queues. And unfortunately the worst wait times are at Saint Peter’s Basilica and the Colosseum. Tiqets can save you time, though. Prices on arrival: Saint Peter’s Basilica EUR 0.00 (queues of around one or two hours); Colosseum EUR 18.00 (queues of around half an hour to an hour). Obviously, the length of the queues will vary depending on the time of year and time of day. And you can’t actually buy tickets at the Colosseum anymore since the pandemic.
*** You’ll have a short wait at the Colosseum even if you do have skip-the-line tickets. Just allow around 15 minutes for the security checks.
I don’t want to put you off, but these photos show the queues when I was there. In the second one, you can see how I was able to simply walk past the long queue at the Vatican Museums. And there’s my side view of everyone standing in line at Saint Peter’s Basilica whilst I was fast-tracked to the security checks.
