Stopped in Rome for 3 days of touring before heading out on a Cruise through the Mediterranean. Wonderful sites, sounds and smells in the city. Such a huge place to visit. 3 days does not do it justice. Best purchase was tickets for the "on and off" bus that tours the city. Made use of this for all 3 days.... More

Of course the basilica is spectacular. Just entering the square is amazing. Inside the basilica is beautiful and magical with so much history-an audio guide/guide is definitely worth it. The Vatican museum itself is great to see but depends on your interests-again a guide is worth is so you know what you are looking at but it is definitely worth... More

Only a brief visit to Rome so dropped in to the Vatican for a quick whistle stop tour with no pre-planning and no tickets purchased. Queued for about 15 minutes to get through security (it was about 6 on a Friday eve in August so although busy, not that bad). Went in to the Basilica under-informed and was immediately stunned...

The Vatican is huge and amazing, if you are visiting in the summer it is way too crowded to manage without buying your tickets online and the help of a museum guide. I used a private company AMALFI COAST DESTINATIONS PRIVATE TOURS and their driver Roberto was so informative, he drove us to Rome and its highlights and then made... More

Wonderful place to visit and is a must while in Rome even if not religious like myself. Book early if wanting to tour as people were queuing from 9am for hours in the hot sun. Also well worth visiting by night as equally impressive.

The Vatican proved to be a total and complete waste of time. I don't think the Romans understand quite well what the term "skip the line" means because we still waited nearly an hour to get through the security checkpoint with our guide and "skip the line" passes. We spent almost $400 for the Omnia Vatican and Rome Pass (... More

Went to the Vatican recently and made a special effort to get there early (8am arrival) and was very glad I did as when leaving shortly after the queue was already 500m long! We had pre-booked sistene chapel tickets through their personal website and could only manage a 1300hr time slot. We thought we'd just try our luck in the... More

My husband and I went to the Vatican off of the Epic Norwegian Cruise. I was in awww by the massive buildings and such and was taking lots of pictures. I took 3 pictures of Michaelangelo statue and the second one had something in it. I would love to go back and see if anyone could tell me what it... More

Thanks to Pope Francis's lack of interest in strolling in his backyard, there are more scheduled garden tours than before. Book way ahead of your trip, come at least half an hour early to check in, you still need to hack your way through the crowds who just can't wait to dash into the Sistine Chapel. Once the tour starts,... 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.
