The Guides must be paid by the tour because they whip you through to the Sistine chapel so fast you miss so much. They sign you up on the promise of avoiding the queues but when we got to the ticket line the queue was negligible. We ended up visiting the Vatican a second time to see everything they had... More

It's better to book the tickets online, unless you like to spend 4 hours in line... This is the greatest and the most exciting museum of the world! Actually, it's not just a museum since you have so much things to do and to see. You can find inside temporary exhibitions. You can see all the Vatican Palace, since the... More

Book in advance, splash the cash a bit and get in first and miss the queues. It's Vatican City, its always busy. Get a guide and you get in 45 mins before the rest of the public. This made such a difference. You get your own radio and earpiece and get to learn things you wont get by walking around... More

My lady is very anti these group tours but concurred that for such enormous venues, they were the best way of getting the most out of the outing. Very professionally handled in difficult circumstances by our guide, & a difficult group with several pushy individuals!

Our group did a 2 hour guided tour and it was well worth it. You didn't know how fast the time went. We had ear pieces so was very easy to her the guide over all the other people. Our guide actually worked on some of the restoration for a year. The only downside was we missed seeing the Pope... More

We had a fabulous guided tour of the Vatican as part of our Globus tour package. Guide's name was Stefano - and he was very knowledgeable, funny bur professional, and could answer any question thrown at him. He obviously loved his work and knew his location intimately. He did not rush us and I think he explained almost every panel... More

We pre-booked this tour via internet. The group consists of 20 persons, not too much. Our tour guide gave us an in-ear device which made it possible for him to speak in a normal voice, thus making it easier for us to hear clearly everything he said. Our tour guide, Allessandro, showed great knowledge of the art and historic value... More

I visited Vaticano museum in November for a secound time. It is awesome! So many beautiful peaces, prosecco (sparkling wine) at the bar,...great experience. Our tourist guide- lady from Australia (blond hair) was the best. She knows all dirty little secrets of popes wich makes tour more fun and interesting;)

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
