I must say this review is not against the guide himself (Danielle) he was knowledgable and humorous and knew the history the Museum, Vatican and chapel like the back of his hand. I just felt that the group was way too large (37), with 1000's in attendance it was a bit stressful for my liking, trying to keep up in... More

This tour was great - well worth it to be guided by an expert (Sal) for just our family. He was so knowledgable that he could focus attention on things that were interesting rather than trying to see everything., He described the backstories and brought everything to life. We felt we learned a ton of history in a short time.... More

It is one of the Vatican Museums, which is situated on the right side of the museum. There are not so many tourists there, but this is a real must-see-place. The collection contains masterpieces of the greatest artists of the history of Italian painting, Melozzo da Forlì, Perugino, Raphael, Leonardo and Tiziano, Caravaggio and Crespi.

We pre- booked a guided tour of the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica direct with the Vatican. If you have ever seen the long queues you will realise this is the best/only way to do this. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. The tour lasted 3 hours, visiting the most important rooms and items in the Vatican... More

Susana of Susana Rome Tours was our private guide for two half-day tours, about three hours each. On day one we toured Ancient Rome (Forum, Palatine Hill, Colosseum) and a few stops along the way including the Campo de Fiori market which is next to where we were staying. Day two was the Vatican.

We booked a guided tour through rome-museum paying around 50 euros for the privilege (for the Vatican museums, St Peters and Sisteine chapel). We skipped the queue which was amazing as the queue for the Vatican is huge and I would definitely recommend booking tickets online to avoid this queue. Our tour group ended up being about 26 people so... More

We arranged for a "private " tour through the Vatican directly before we left the US. You still need a Roma Pass for admission though. True you bypass the entry lines but the massive crowds in the Vatican take away from the experience . The tour is 2-3 hours long and we almost left a few times due to the... More

We arranged private tours of Vatican City and the Collosseum/Roman Forum with Vito Naddeo. He is a studied Art Historian and Architect with a great gift for sharing interesting facts and stories. We had wonderful explanations and thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. He connected well with our teenage daughters too. We became friends and he even took us on... More

Our hotel lined up a guided tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica for us through Eye Tours. Our guide, Angela Caiati, was superb. She taught us so much, preparing us in advance for what we would see and experience at each stage of the 3 hr. tour, so that we felt we were able to... More

The Vatican is so large and there are so many people it is defintely worth the money to take a "skip the line tour." Try to get with an large established tour guide, if you go when crowds are small you can get to see other parts of the museum not always shown on tour like the Stanza della Signatura... More
