I have been a Travel Agent in the United States since 1982. In all of my travel experiences, using Caput Mundi Vatican Tours, was the worst travel mistake I have made in 33 years. Three of their employees lied to several people over and over, keeping us waiting in the hot sun for over 3 hours for our Skip the... More

We entered the high acclaimed museum after a 10 minute walk and skipping the line in our private tour but ended up becoming a sheep in the herd in the masses of people shoved into this delicate edifice. I hadn't known that it was such mania until I was stuck between Michaelangelo's masterpieces and angry sweaty Asian tourists. I would... More

We used this private guided tour company. Our guide was Italian and passionate about the artwork his knowlege was incredible. It brought so much to our attention that we would have missed under our own devices.

As Catholic pilgrims to the Vatican City, we really wanted to see the treasures of our church through the lens of faith. We decided early on that we did not want our Vatican Museum experience to be one of rushing through yet another art museum - we really wanted to learn about the great faithfulness and the divine inspirations which...

Guides will rush you through the museum then dump you, not worth the extra money for a guide. Was approached by someone selling tickets to skip the line and avoid the long cue, Ticket was 47 euros, we were told we would see the museum, the Sistine chapel, the Basilica and go to the top of the dome on the...

This place attracts so many people that it is necessary to reserve in advance a guiding tour to visit the Vatican museums, the Vatican gardens and the Sixtine chapels. For the rest of Rome, it is not necessary because there is so much to see. The best way is to select some of the key sites - monuments, basilicas, museums,... More

We were accosted by a woman talking in broken English. She was telling us that if we took a guide into the Vatican we would skip queues and get into the Basilica of St Peter much quicker than on our own, so for 50 Euros 25 each, we took one. BIG MISTAKE!! Group of 41 people jostling for position with... 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.
