I loved the rich history. So many pictures, tapestries, maps, sculptures. Really awe inspiring. There was nothing to dislike.

Thought my experience of going around the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel as a wheelchair visitor would help some readers. Due to a recent accident I needed to hire a wheelchair for my visit. I emailed ahead and immediately had confirmation of a wheelchair being reserved for me on arrival at the Museum. I had to go to the bag... More

This was amazing, the Vatican City was buzzing with tourists who all wanted to see the beautiful building, the lovely museums, historical background and information. The hire of the headsets were invaluable with all the information that was given, really worth it.

A great tour. Art work is beyond belief.We took an early 8am tour which I recommend. The tour got us past the large lines of people waiting to be admitted to the Vatican Museum. Our tour guide gave us a great history especially of Michaelangelo's work on the Sistine Chapel. My advice: go as early as you can to avoid... More

It was an amazing place, full of history and art. There are lots of pieces to see, like the Sistine Chapel. I really recommend going there and let the rest for another day.

Sixtine chapel is of course breathtaking. And the queue to museum as well. We were there one hour before opening and without any troubles got in per 16€! The Indians thieves offers entry without waiting :-))))) per 33€!!!! Do not be foolish and wait 15 minutes more.

From the Museum I have really mixed feelings. On the one hand, beautiful and admirable art works and places that make up the history and, on the other hand, the incredible amount of people in the exhibition area. I am shocked by the amount of people inside the halls and I have never seen anything worse and I was completely... More
