We took the extended early morning Vatican Viator tour and everything was well organized and the tour was excellent. The Group was a little bigger than I would have preferred, especially, given how crowded the Vatican was even early in the morning. The Tour Guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour and tour company. It... More

We had the pleasure to visit Vatican City with Debra from Tickitaly.com. She was excellent. Very knowledgeable and wanted to and succeeded in providing a valuable 3 hour tour. Never was a big tour fan. She has helped to change my mind. Provided insight I never would have gotten otherwise.

Annalisa provided my daughters and me a wonderful, personalized tour the took us through the Vatican museums to the Sistine Chapel and then to St. Peter's Basilica. Since there is no talking inside the Sistine Chapel, she spent about 30 minutes with a tablet full of pictures explaining to us what we would be seeing inside. She was so knowledgable... More

We took what ended up being nearly 4 hour tour with Frank Van den Broeke (you will need to search his name to find his tour and web site). Buy your Museum tickets from the Vatican web site, then head over to Frank's site - but maybe you should check to see if Frank is available at the time and... More

It must have been 40 degrees inside the vatican. The feeling was packed and hot and not comfortable. Towards the end of the tour - about 2 hours later, we emerged to the exit via St Peters Basilica. It was very hot and stuffy until this point. I would recommend this only if you can take large groups. The vatican... More

We bought skip the line tickets with a guided tour for Vatican City, the museum and Sistine chapel. Well worth skipping the line for however the tour guide we were assigned wasn't very helpful. She was very ditsy and didn't actually give us new information and expected. Us to know quite a lot about the history anyway. Very disappointed with... More

You can book the tour at the site itself, no need to prebook online. Prices vary between 48 to 50 euros per person but most importantly don't book with an agent who asks for your money on the spot. Consider the ones who will register your details and introduce you to the tour guide and if you are convinced you... More

I am so happy that we chose Joy of Rome for our tour around the Vatican City! From start to finish the entire experience was an absolute delight. Our tour guide, Dario, was incredibly knowledgeable and keen to share his passion of the arts and history with us. We are a young couple who were visiting Italy with my mother.... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
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.
