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

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

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.
