We booked an afternoon 3 hour tour of the Vatican Musuems. Our guide Guilia was very professional and well informed about the history and the arts in the museums. She said we were very lucky because it was a quiet afternoon and not a lot of people were around so we could appreciate the art and statues up close. I... More

We booked the guided tour 10am Thurs 5th Nov. I have no idea what we paid for. The level of knowledge of the female guide was poor and we simply joined all the other visitor's walking in unison or crawling as you rarely get a head of speed up. It's like being herded into the away end of a football... More

I booked for a tour guide of the Vatican museums, sistene chapel and St Peter basilica. I would strongly recommend a tour guide as it was extremely busy. We got an excellent tour guide and she made the experience very enjoyable.

Apparently the Vatican sells as many tickets as it can. Books as many tours as possible. Without regard to safety or quality of experience. Could not finish our tour. Recently was there and was over whelmed by crush of the crowds. Be very cautious as to when you try to visit the museums, weekends and holidays are best skipped. Early... More

The Vatican blew it on this one! The only reason I rated it "average" was out of respect for the spectacular artworks and the magnificence of the palace itself. As presently arranged, it deserves a "poor" rating. We visited at midday on Friday, and the place was so packed with people that it was a challenge to relax and appreciate... More

The treasures of the Vatican are too numerous to mention. There is no way to get to see everything in one tour. The art and sculptures are simply astonishing and magnificent. However, the crowds make it impossible to get the full satisfaction from a tour. You are jammed together like sardines in a tin. Yet I would return again and... More

After reading a lot about Vatican, we decided to take the guided tours to the museum and chapels. Vatican is very, very busy (actually was the busiest place in Rome) and if you don't want to spend a lot of time on the line, buy your ticket in advance. We usually don't like guided tours, because we like to go... More

A well travelled teacher of my son strongly recommended walking tours to make use of limited time during this high season visit to Rome, and to avoid hours standing in hot lines for tickets. It was excellent advice!! We took 4 in Italy, and each one was excellent. Our guide was Julietta, and she was a treasure! We had a... More

After planning a 'once in a lifetime' family holiday to Rome to celebrate our father's retirement, my parents bought the OMNIA passes. NOT WORTH THE MONEY The Vatican is a cattle market and we were assured 2 hours was enough. It is not, it was so busy that when our guide was too ahead we lost transmission, the staff were... More

Visiting the Vatican was one of the most important parts of my trip so I was extremely excited! We decided to pay for a tour guide, other than skipping the queues this was a waste of money! He had us stand on the street while he spoke for half an hour then took us down a side street so we... 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.
