Best to do the tour of the museum, Art Gallery, Tapestry room, Sistine Chapel and the basilica with a guide. The queue is horrendous, but lots of people around wanting you to go with their guides, shop around you can always haggle for a price you want to pay. Ours started off at 50euros and in the end agreed 35... More

Vatican museums are scary! You read so much before traveling and everybody are scared of the line and the crowd. That's why we planned our trip to Rome December far from Christmas hoping to find less people. It was just the right thing and hiring a guide for us was great idea too., we were lucky to have Simone from... More

Katie was fantastic. She provided wonderful descriptions of the work of both Michaelangelo and Raphael. We did the museums, Diatribe Sistine Chapel and Basilica. I definitely recommend reserving the tour through the Vatican Museums in advance. No lines and you can walk past the annoying tour group salespeople in the street.

We did the ancient Rome tour for €55 pp and my gosh was it worth it. A 3 hour tour with 2 locations including the Colosseum and the Palatino . This is where the emperor's lived and the Roman forum and the gates of triumph and temples are located. The beginnings of Rome itself. This is the only tour we... More

We had a lovely tour of the vatican museums. We skipped the massive queue and had a fascinating time. The guide was full of amazing facts. Whoever would have thoiught the chuch could have made 8 - 9 million euros a day from the museums. Well I suppose that virtually anyone who saw who crowded the museums were. This wasn't... More

This was a very, very emotional experience to actually sit at the Sistine Chapel and admire that famous ceiling.. St Peter's Basilica was breathtaking with Michelangelo's Pieta..

We were only in Rome for a day this time, and on a previous visit I had not had time to visit the Sistine Chapel, which was definitely on my "bucket list". I had heard that the general public lineup was terrible in peak times on the year (September), so I decided to sign up for a tour that would... More

Prior to visiting Rome we were advised by numerous web sites that the queues to get into the Vatican museum were very long and we would probably have to wait ages to gain entry. Various companies offer the sale of Vatican entry tickets, promising immediate entry without the queues. We decided to use a company called 'Rome Museum' and paid... More

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

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.
