Tacky stalls all around. Overflowing bins, ticket touts asking big prices to queue jump. No toilets available. You can walk in the square for free and that's all unless you want to shell out the forty two Euros each. No cover from the sun for those queuing right around the square. Terrible place.

Our kids were intrigued that we were "leaving" Italy to enter the Vatican. We had a wonderful private your guide who helped us cut all the lines and gave us a 5 hour history lesson of the Vatican while we toured the key attractions within. At the end we had taken a lot in and got to send postcards from... More

I did a tour which was great however not tailored to the young audience, and many were bored to stand around listening to a personal opinion of one piece. The lady was knowledgable and certainly interesting but not for those who don't truly appreciate it. As well as make sure your tour is finished by the time the pope appears,... More

A must on a visit to Rome!! Plenty to see and some beautiful pieces, although you need to book it all in advance to avoid the queues, and still be willing to put up with large crowds throughout!! Although the exhibitions are great to see, the Vatican can close sections of the museum with out prior knowledge, meaning you can't... More

We pre-booked our tickets to avoid the queues and were glad we did. Admittedly we didn't have an audio/guided tour but having seen what was inside it would've taken all day to see it properly! That's our issue really there is too much to see that you can't properly take it all in! My wife wanted to see the Sistine... More

The Vatican is a must see for any one in Rome. We visited on a day the pope was giving a speech to children so the area was packed. You couldn't move in certain parts. We bought a skip the line ticket which was well worth the extra money. Be sure to go to St Peter's Basillica. Our ticket allowed... More

-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
