We wouldn’t do this again for the museum. It is wall to wall people and even with ear phones by the time you get to whatever the guide is talking about you are not sure what she was pointing out. We had about 30 people...More

What we did not realise - being the silly tourists what we are - is that the tour which we booked online only included the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican museums. Fortunately, there are many people walking around trying to inform you and direct you....More

I was somewhat hesitant about this 3 hour tour, because my attention span is that of an ant...however I must say it was fabulous!!!! Not a second of boredom. So much history, art and religion. Even if you aren't religious you will enjoy this tour.

We used Viator's skip the line guided tour for the Vatican and the Colosseum. The experience was wonderful. Very informative guides. Our Colosseum guide is an archaeologist and our Vatican tour guide is an arts professor. They made the tours beyond interesting. The Sistine Chapel...More

pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican

acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the

We were pleased with Viator. It is important to do the "early entry" tour as you go in at 7:30 AM when it is not crowded. The public and the other tours come in at 9AM and it is impossible to walk.
