I thought the Raphael Rooms, Sphere within a Sphere and Cortile della Pigna, were all part of the Vatican Museums.

That is, they do not need any special tickets. I thought they are all included in the Vatican Museums ticket.

But there is conflicting information online that seems to say that these need separate tickets.

Is it true ? Do they all need separate tickets ?

    According to visitvatican.info/raphael-rooms entry is included in the basic ticket, which you can buy via the official Vatican Museums website

  • Don't buy skip-the-line tickets. They're a scam. (They're real tickets, but massively marked up, and when you get to the museum, there'll be no line to skip.)

  • @A.R. There are no tickets present in the official website, they are all sold out. What about if my tickets are reserved for a particular time?
