We had tried to register for the Vatican City Tour a week earlier before our date of arrival to Rome. However, it was full. When we arrived Rome, we decided to join a private guided tour at around €60. The tour guide spoke good English & was very knowledgeable about the Vatican history. We were impressed. She guided us through... More

Absolutely suggest a private tour with Simone Lanna. I worked with Joy of Rome and was very happy with how easy it was to book the trip. Simone did a wonderful job with our tour. It was just my mother and I with another family of 4. It was the perfect size. I would never visit the Vatican without booking... More

Amazing, well worth it to get a guide rather than wait in queue. Cost us around 50 eruos and the tour took about 1 hr. Sistene chapel was amazing, its last on the tour before you go into the basilica, so make sure you get to stay there for a decent amount of time. Yes you do need to cover... More

Similarly to other experiences on TA, we were bombarded by sales people when we arrived at the Vatican. We booked a tour for the next day with Caput Mundi. We were told to arrive at 1.30 for an orientation with the tour starting at 2pm. The tour did not start til 2.45, and it quickly became obvious we were tagged... More

We booked our trip for the morning with via tours skip the line.. On booking you are given a voucher & a number to arrange your pickup time. This was no hassle & a private car picked us up at 7am to take us to join the main coach. Our tour guide was max you follow the red umbrella and... More

Book in advance as the lines can take hours and are not worth it. We arrived as scheduled 20 minutes before our tour, joined our group and saw the museums, Sistine chapen and St. Peter's basilica. I found the tour showed me all I wanted to see in this glorious place. And taught me so much about the art and... More

Great. Wonderful guide. Pre-booked our tour with Travel Bound. Skip the line, which was helpful. Our guide was great. She took the time to explain everything and the history of the city. The tour was 4 hours, we ended in St Peter's Church. Time on your own after that point.

If you did not go to Vatican City, you did not go to Rome. Amazing history, rich artwork, no words can explain the experience of visiting Sistine chapel, st. peter's basilica. Must do it with "skip the line" guide to avoid waiting in line for hours but to understand and appreciate the museum. This museum takes in 30000 people everyday,... More

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.
