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

I'd agree with other reviewers that the crowds are chaotic. There's probably no way around that. This place is a historical monument that is still in use for one of the worlds largest religions, so be prepared to see a lot of people. Regardless of that, it's still worth seeing whether you're a Catholic or not. The art work on... More

This is really an amazing place. If you can arrive in time for a mass, make the effort to do so. The rest of my family climbed to the top of the dome and said the views were stunning. The size is awe-inspiring, as are the priceless works of art. Beware...there are crowds so don't let that detract from the... More

We visited the Vatican museum as part of a Rick Steves tour group so fortunately we did not have to stand in line to get in. However, were not prepared for the huge crowds throughout the museum. It is massive (you won’t be able see everything in one visit) and the works of art are amazing, but the chaos inside... More

Perfect for short a vacation around Rome. It worth to visit and spend at least 1 day over there. The Vatican museum is great, and so are the restaurants and the gift shops around. I would go there for a 2nd time, anytime.

There is a long long wait to get in, so have some patience and a planned full day. When you do finally get into the chapel, it is just jaw dropping. The intricacies of every inch of the chapel is beyond comprehension. You have absolutely no idea on how large it is from the outside, you can probably fit the... More

I expected a lot from the whole day and thought the Vatican would be amazing but I was disappointed! The queues crowds and chaos inside was insane!!! The tours rush past you and take up so much room. They're loud and annoying when they stop. It's all so poorly organised that people are herded like cattle!!! The Raphael rooms are... More

I had no idea how large the Vatican was, but I do now! Every inch of it, wall, ceilings, gardens are magnificent! Its beauty was overwhelming at times and you had to slow down just to absorb the enormity of it all. Plans to spend lots of time and wear comfortable shoes!
