-I saw that there were 3 openings for entering the vatican and one had the huge line up but the middle line was empty and you could enter in with an online ticket...I went in with the tour where you pay extra for people who help you skip the line -it was ok to take those "skip the line people"...

The Vatican is a one of a kind experience. Be sure to pay for a "skip the line" tour during peak travel season. The Vatican museum is great. St Peter's Basilica is one of a kind. Be sure to go down the stairwell left of the altar. It leads to the pope's crypts. Wow.

The volume of people especially in the Sistine Chapel actually ruins the experience of such a holy and prestigious place. It is way too touristy. I'm sure this will never change. It is worth the trip to at least cross off your bucket list. Whatever you do buy tickets in advance. I went with a private tour guide hired through... More

I'm not a very religious person but still went to check it out. The lines were incredible--never made it inside, some people waited 6-7 hrs. I didn't want to waste a day waiting in line but even if u don't make it inside, u can get great photos from outside and appreciate the grandeur of it all. Still worth the... More

Skip the lines, it is worth it otherwise be in lines for hours. Really enjoyed the tour guide and all the info provided. So much to see and the beauty of the various sections is really over whelming. A must see for a Rome visit.

Seeing all the people queueing made me wonder if there is a better way to visit Vatican city and to my "surprise" there is. Simply book your tickets online. The only problem we had, was to find the right entrance. For visiting the Vatican museum and Sistine chapel the entrance is on the "right" side of the Vatican city. Reserve... More

Visited in the days after the Cannnonisations and was a lovely experience. There are so many museums and things to see that it cant all be done in one day. We opted for the tours which included The Sistine Chapel, St. Peters Basillica, Raphaels Rooms, gallery of the geographical maps, Raphaels rooms and more. It was great to be guided... More

What an amazing site. The views are awesome. The history that surrounds this place is amazing. You will not be disappointed. We had a guide and were able to walk by a 2 block line and go right in. I recommend you buy tickets in advance and use a guild . Well worth it. Dress code no shorts and ladies... More

Along with my family, I was very excited to witnessed the magnificent architectural structure of the Vatican. The St. Peters Square area was extremely crowded that day as it was a beautiful day and for some people, a vacationing time. Because of this, we waited in the large line up to enter the St. Peter's Basilica for hours until we... More

The Vatican is a magnificent palace located inside Vatican City. It looks stunning from the outside, but the spectacular sights are located inside the building. I took a tour inside the Vatican with my family. It was surprisingly uncrowded for such a historical point of interest. Before we entered the Vatican, we viewed the Cortile della Pigna (“Courtyard of the... More
