When me and my friend arrived at St. Peter's square, the line if get into the church were extremely long. A young lady talked us into taking a two hour tour, promising us that we wouldn't have to stand in line at any given point and get a complete tour of the Vatican museums and the church. First, we had... More

We originally visited Vatican City planning on queuing up in line to visit the Sistine Chapel, we were approached by the Happy Travel Company who offered us a great deal for the whole package, the use of microphones and headphones made it easier to hear the guide and the tour was fascinating! Alberto, our tour guide made the tour interesting,... More

Highly recommend this Vatican tour. Our tour guide Francesco was more than amazing. He was fun and very knowledgable. No complaints here! The Vatican was extremely crowded today, yet he was very organized in keeping our small group together and informed of every aspect. Awesome job Francesco! We thoroughly enjoyed this tour.

Dany Martines was very helpful and gave some very useful tips about other sites to see in Rome that are not that popular. Happy Travel and Dany Martines provided great service and was a good option for saving time during the long queue. Dany is very passionate about history and demonstrates it during the overall tour and excites you with... More

On Friday 31st October early in the afternoon we headed to Vatican City. The intention was to spend the afternoon to visit St Peter's Basilica and then maybe the Museums and Sistine Chapel. The queue was very long (I mean all around the Basilica's huge square) so we asked an attendant in regards to the expected waiting time. He said... More

We took the tour at the chance to skip the massive waiting line for St. Peter's. Our guide Alberto was very good and it was a pleasure listening to his commentaries. The only thing I can complain of is the 5 euro charged extra by the company if paying by credit card. After the fee of 46 euros per person,... More

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighborhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
