For a skip the line tour, you can't go wrong. Our booking changed a couple of times, due to an early closing of the Sistine chapel, and Viator kept us updated. Our guide, Elizabetta, was very knowledgable and clearly loves her job.well worth the price.

She is one of the best guides we have ever had. We done the Vatican Museum, Raphels Room, the Sistine Chapel and St Peters. I would... More

I had gone to see the Sistene chapel and St. Peter's and the Vatican museum before with a private guide early in the morning, but when I found myself in Rome with my daughter, a paining student, unexpectedly, we decided to take a midday group tour, since that was the only way to get in. The company was Grey Tours... More

I had visited the Vatican museum before but not with a guide. Truly this made it a far better experience! Our guide, Simone, from Joy of Rome tours was incredibly knowledgable. He is an archeologist and he had the most wonderful insights and he connected all the different things that were happening in history at the relevant times to what... More

I am so happy I decided to book the tour online and skip the Line. Believe me the queue is unbelievably long so if you r on a short stay in Rome, you... More

We toured the Vatican on a Wednesday, when Pope Francis usually has an audience in St. Peter’s Square. I wish the Roman Catholic church would issue priority tickets to those of us lifetime devout Catholics to get into St. Peter’s Square, rather than the traveling hordes of non-Christian tourists who couldn’t give a rat’s behind about the Pope. Also, try... More

We utilized Angela Raffaelli's services during our recent trip to Rome. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and provided great insight into the Vatican, its museum, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. We would definitely use her services again and highly recommend her.

The Vatican is a great place to visit when visiting Rome. The paintings done by Michael Angelo and Raphael are really amazing especially the ceilings. A useful tip is to use a tour guide to avoid the long queues. Also nice to be informed as you go along. There are so much to see really worth the visit.

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.
