Wonderful place to visit and is a must while in Rome even if not religious like myself. Book early if wanting to tour as people were queuing from 9am for hours in the hot sun. Also well worth visiting by night as equally impressive.

The Vatican proved to be a total and complete waste of time. I don't think the Romans understand quite well what the term "skip the line" means because we still waited nearly an hour to get through the security checkpoint with our guide and "skip the line" passes. We spent almost $400 for the Omnia Vatican and Rome Pass (... More

Went to the Vatican recently and made a special effort to get there early (8am arrival) and was very glad I did as when leaving shortly after the queue was already 500m long! We had pre-booked sistene chapel tickets through their personal website and could only manage a 1300hr time slot. We thought we'd just try our luck in the... More

The vatican is breathtaking . Just the out side is amazing I never went inside but my daughter had on a previous trip and she said how wonderful it is. Well worth a visit. If you like history and lots to do Rome is the place

My husband and I went to the Vatican off of the Epic Norwegian Cruise. I was in awww by the massive buildings and such and was taking lots of pictures. I took 3 pictures of Michaelangelo statue and the second one had something in it. I would love to go back and see if anyone could tell me what it... More

Thanks to Pope Francis's lack of interest in strolling in his backyard, there are more scheduled garden tours than before. Book way ahead of your trip, come at least half an hour early to check in, you still need to hack your way through the crowds who just can't wait to dash into the Sistine Chapel. Once the tour starts,... More

The Vatican is, of course, a very interesting place. The only problem is that they admit too many people at one time. The place was should to should and that takes away much of the enjoyment of viewing the Vatican.

Wonderful experience but allow a whole morning and bottlenecks in the Raphaël and sistine are unavoidable but savour the beauty and peace of the Vatican art collection with bacon Picasso matisse etc. Bring water and patience and forgiveness for the minority of rude pushy and arrogant.

What can I say, you can't go to Rome without seeing the Vatican. It's cool! Try to go early morning or late evening to avoid queues into the museum.We bought our tickets in advance and went late evening when it wasn't too busy. You can scan your prepaid tickets go get entry. We had to go back to the ticket... More

Wow ! The Vatican is unbelievable you cannot possibly miss this visit when in Rome . Breathtaking . Can be very very busy but it's well worth the wait . It's an absolute must visit place while in Rome . Probably my favourite place in Europe ! Enjoy !

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
