Our guide , Christina, was excellent and that's why I chose a 5 rating. The site is, of course, amazing, but the huge crowds were awful...and being yelled out to be silent in the Sustine Chapel quite offensive.

We visited the Vatican, and our guide Christina knew everything about everything!! She is American which made her very understandable and she had a great charisma and joked a lot.

You could come to the When in Rome office before 8.45 and collect the ticket and then you will go with a tour guide as a group from their office, which is walking distance to Vatican

Yes - you still have to wait in line though, as places like the Colosseum and Vatican sell a lot of ‘skip the line’ tickets. However, you have to wait much longer if you don’t purchase ‘skip the line’ tickets.

Because of the nature of the terrain it will have a level of difficulty. I would look for a tour that deals with disabilities specifically. Take the earliest tour due to amounts of people.
