Not being a religious person, I wasn't sure I needed to see Vatican City in the short time we were in Rome. Luckily, my husband convinced me and we were easily able to purchase tickets online when we were there. We chose the evening tour, which was lovely because there were no lines even if we hadn't had pre-bought tickets,... More

We did the official Vatican tour of the Vatican Museum (including the Sistine Chapel) and St Peter's. We booked it in advance at what seemed like a reasonable 35 euros each. The Vatican is spectacular and there is so much to see, unfortunately we missed most of it as our tour guide was awful. Her English was terrible and she... More

As a tourist in Rome, the Vatican is a must. Steeped in history the guided tour is a necessity. The value alone exists in beating the queues with your tour guide. Sistine chapel was a slight let down but the St Peters Bascilla was amazing. Just being in the Vatican square was worth the trip

We used the metro to get to the Vatican from our hotel. We had not booked a tour and quickly discovered that the queues were hours long _ it was the start to the summer break. We opted to accept a Maya Tours agent's offer and purchased a tour at 50 euro each. We did have to wait some 40... More

Hi all, when you visit Rome, you will quite naturally visit the Vatican City. My suggestion is to take the guided tours of the Vatican as the vastness will leave you spell bounded of what to see where. That said, don't just stand admiring one piece of artistic installation. There is loads to see in the Vatican. My favourite though... More

Great guided tour and skip the line option is the best way to see the Vatican. The tour takes you outside and explains so much of h history.

Wished we'd booked this tour on-line with Viator. Instead we were told by a guide in the street that he had a trip going immediately. We were actually walked to an office and after paying the money told that the tour starts in 35 minutes. The tour company was Moya Rome tours. Our group was far too large, in excess... More
