My husband and I visited in March with a guide from Tours of Naples. We spent three hours there and could have spent five or more hours. There is so much to see. Amazing statues, gardens, tapastries, paintings, sculptures, shops, chapels and more. Definitely buy tickets in advance you will go to the front of the line. There were hundreds... More

I have visited this small powerful country during my visit to Rome during August 2013. mainly it is a religious visit for Christians specifically Catholics yet you will meet lots of people from other religions. to enjoy the city and its church's and museums it is better that you arrange several tours and it is better if you do it...

This was my second visit to the Vatican and it is always lovely. I was surprised by how crowded it was given that we came mid week in February, but it was busy! Make sure you either prebook tickets through the Vatican or join a skip the line tour group because the line was about 2 hours when we entered,... More

I have to admit, I wasn't too thrilled about going to see the Vatican and it's museums. Purely because I'm not that interested in the Christian culture etc. However, I spent that long a time inside that they were beginning to close for tourists by the time I left. We were very honoured to witness a funeral taking place inside... More

The Vatican Museum is a must while visiting Rome. But whatever you do, be sure to order your tickets from their web site in advance. I happened to do that and was so grateful. The line was incredibly long and we skipped right to the front. If you have kids, be sure to order the children's audio guide. My 9... More

This is definitely something to experience if you visit Rome amazing to walk round this fantastic building and the atmosphere when in the chapel is amazing. A useful hint book your tickets before you go as we went straight in and the people that didn't were queuing 2 hours in the rain.

The Vatican Museum is so beautiful everywhere you look. The ceilings are spectacular: they should offer a tour via stretcher so that you could really see each detail. The various tapestries and sculptures are just amazing. I used the audio guide which was great because I understood what I was seeing! The Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica is definitely...

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

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.
