St Peter's Basilica is a must visit. Very nice area with many shops. However, beware of the many pickpockets all around. Also be careful of the tickets tout who sells you tickets at a high price. Do your research before going

Let me begin saying that I came here on a 9 hr layover and it was the absolutely #1 thing I wanted to see. It was completely amazing and I was overwhelmed by everything inside here. Be prepared to come and wait in line no matter what unless you come first thing in the morning probably before they even open.... More

Spent the whole day here just wandering around in amazement. We chose to not take a guided tour as we felt that this may rush the experience, and it would have. Tours are not required as you are naturally lead around everywhere by the signs. Audio guides are available and useful to those not interested in reading the info stands.... More

The Vatican needs no introduction. A description of the art, architecture and history is beyond the scope of this review. Suffice it to say that seeing the art and buildings in books and film can never compare to actually seeing it in the flesh. You will be able to see perspectives and orientations not possible by review of the literature... More

It is hard to describe the wonders and rich history in the Vatican. The art is beautiful. The sculptures, painting and murals are amazing. The history and grandeur is breath taking. Well worth taking a guided tour. Skip the lines and learn the secrets. Take the extended guided tour which includes several other churches.

Book online to avoid massive Disneyland style queues. You still have a queue as everyone else has Skip the Line tickets ! Inside you first encounter Airport type security and then you shuffle (yes shuffle) around the rooms due to the high level of groups. Beautiful art, tapestry and statues everywhere! We managed to skip past the organised groups stopping... More

A spiritual enriching experience. There are just so much to see and to do in this smallest country in the world, both for pilgrims and tourists alike. Try to be there for an audience with the Pope on every Wednesday morning or Saturday midday

you can't go to rome without seeing the vatican. absolutely magnificent! buy your tickets from the vatican web site and have no problem entering. it was a wonderful experience.....except for the crowds. way to many people allowed in at the same time. makes the experience less rewarding. people are shoulder to shoulder . we had a tour from the vatican...

WOW! Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica are MUST SEE for anyone visiting Italy within 1000km of Rome. You just have to marvel at sheer beauty and all the art from a previous era. Words do not do it justice! Do NOT pay attention to other reviews that skip-the-line tours are not worth it. Do take a tour,... More

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.
