The only sensible way to get in is with a Q Beater ticket. 2 to 3 hours in the heat of Rome is not the way to prepare for what is inside.
I would thoroughly recommend adding St Peter's Basilica to Vatican Museum tour I would also recommend you do the early tour at 8am avoiding a crush at least for a lot of the way round the tour. I do think it is worth the extra cost if you can budget for it , as it can potentially save you a... More
I felt blessed being here, i saw Pope in General Audience. Breathtaking architecture. Am sure no one will miss this, but be ready for huge waiting time.
Going to the Main cathedral of the Catolic Religion, of course you have to expect allways thousends of people per day. Learn to deal with it, because everybody is trying to do the same, getting in. It is well organized and i went on a sunday, must tell you that the best time to get in the sistine chapel is... More
You can spend an entire day here! Try not to come on Sunday since there are services offered. I recommend you enter through the Vatican Museum. The line is shorter and the Museum is amazing as well. The Pieta is worth the wait!
Hightlight of our trip. Arrived about 10 and queue was around the square but we wer in after 80 mins. The queue got smaller after this.The Basilica is fantastic and we also went up to viewing platform. Alot of stairs to be climbed to get to top but there is an elevator half way wnd there is a terrace there... More
St Peter's Basilica is a must-do tourist attraction that offers you religion, history and an experience that will last a lifetime. Although the queue to get into the Basilica can be fairly long (anything between 1-2 hours) I guarantee that this FREE ENTRY attraction will not fail to impress. Additional you have the opportunity to pay a very small fee... More
Having gone to Milan, Venice & Florence already and admire all the key cathedrals & climbed up the towers & duomos, I was beginning to get a little "duomo-ed out" and didn't think I could be impressed any further. I was wrong! As soon as I stepped inside the building, I literally let out a loud "wooooooooooooow!". The interior of... More
We waited in line late one afternoon for about 30 minute, totally worth it! What a beautiful cathedral! A mass was going on during our visit. I just wish we could have seen the pope!
Highly recommended, amazing artwork and architecture. Go early to avoid monumental queues. Read about the site prior to visiting.

Hi, my husband and two young teens are visiting Rome in mid February 2015. I'm planning to buy online tickets (without the tour) during the week.Should I purchase tickets for the afternoon and see St. Peter's in the morning? Or purchase online tickets at 9 am then head over to St Peter's? Please advise on best strategy for seeing St. Peter's and the Sistine Chapel? We are planning on spending a day at the Vatican. Thanks!
I am visiting Rome next month and want to visit St. Peter's Basilica. I have came across a number of sites to purchase tickets in advance to avoid the queues.
However all vary in price and have specific times for tours.
Can anyone suggest which is the best site to use? Particularly one without timing restrictions?
I am planning to visit the Vatican on the 11th of April.
I have no idea how to get into the Vatican. I did some reading and noticed everyone was talking about the Vatican museums. Does this mean we have to get into the museum first and then go inside the Vatican city itself? what about tickets? do I have to book in advance? and where?
