We had already purchased our tickets before we went to Rome and we approached by what I would call a ticket tout who persuaded us to upgrade to include a guided tour, what a big mistake. We promised a knowledgable guide and entrance to the Basilica. The audio equipment we were given did not seem to work very well and... More

Never do the Vatican without doing s guided tour - the reason being that the queue for tickets is never ending but with a pre/booked ticket which you can buy mostly anywhere in the area you just walk past the queue! Extremely busy and it can be difficult to follow your guide - hence the reason for only marking a... More

I enjoyed the experience, but there were so many people there, even thought we had chosen to go at an off peak time, that you were shuttled through without being able to spend much time looking at things that interested you and also missing many areas that may have been enjoyable, e.g. the artwork. Initially, I felt as though I... More

We booked the extended tour before we left home and therefore arrived at the meeting point and went straight in. This is a must if you are visiting Rome. The only downside was that the headsets were not very comfortable but once replaced with my own, which fitted the radios, everything was fine. We booked with Viator via Tripadvisor who... More

The viator guided tour of the vatican museums etc was fantastic! We were guided through the museums as well as the Sistine chapel and St Peters Basilica . Had we entered these rooms and halls without a tour much of the significance of different art collections and frescos would have meant little to us. Our tour guide Tonya was brilliant... More

Find a reputable tour company, read the reviews & decide. The guided tour will help you better understand all aspects of the Vatican. The guide should explain the s, paintings, time references. The tour company should offer skip the line, which you'll need. Try and find out which days are the least BUZY, if possible & book your tour for... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
