Faster Than Skip-the-Line: Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica Tour

24,711 reviews
Home to some of the world’s most iconic paintings, the Vatican Museums attract huge crowds. Save yourself hours of waiting by booking this skip-the-line tour of the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms, and St. Peter’s Basilica (when the option is selected) in Rome. Early morning and evening tour options mean you can explore the complex during far less crowded time slots. Upgrade to a small-group tour limited to 10 people for a more personalized experience.

The pies were absolutely delicious. I'm still talking about how good they were. Even if they were a bit burnt, the burnt crust added to the flavor and was incredible. We took some to our hotel and afterward, I wish I had purchased more. It seemed to be a very old two-room bakery and locally owned. I recommend this to anyone who wants authentic pastries. A block down is a what I'd call a more modern place to get pastries and cappuccino, we also went there, but it does not compare to the authentic flavors and hard work the local bakers put into their dishes. We went here also because one of our tour guides said we must visit what locals call the Jewish Guetto and try the food. I'm so glad we listened to her.

We found ourselves in the Jewish area of Rome and passed the Pasticeria Boccione without realising. We doubled back and stepped into the shop. Ordered 2 slices of the ricotta and cherry pie and it was simply delicious. It's not sweet and the pastry was lovely and short, but not too crumbly. A real treat.

Forno Boccione is undoubtedly the Ghetto's most famous bakery, and despite a lack of signage the bustling corner store remains jammed from open to close for slices of their famous Cherry Cakes and Kosher classics. Also known as Pasticceria Boccione, and easy to miss given the simple storefront on Via del Portico d’Ottavia, the best way to locate this Bakery is by its nearly-constant line from 08h00 through 19h30 Sunday through Thursday, but only until 15h30 on Friday with workers appropriately off for a day of rest on Saturday. An area of tumultuous history, the Jewish Ghetto’s formation by Pope Paul IV in 1555 segregating an entire community until its liberation in 1870, guests entering Boccione today will find little changed about the postage-stamp interior and even less altered as relates to the recipes. Still adherent to dietary laws, in addition to antiquated rules such as one that did not allow Jewish persons to sell Dairy, the collection lining two cases plus the front window largely consists of unleavened Biscuits and Cakes, the Coconut Macaroon one stand-out thanks to its chewiness beneath char while an unlabeled braid resembling Challah was far harder but an elegant mix of Fruit, Nuts and Honey. Not small in terms of portions, every item weighted to price, those seeking Rome’s best Biscotti owe Boccione a look for their Chocolate-studded specimen, though not at the expense of forgoing Cakes stuffed with Cherries - the Almond version delectable but still not on the level of slices featuring unsweetened Ricotta that sell out quickly, just as they did when originally cooked under a near-burned top to disguise the Cheese and shun Papal edicts.

This small, simple bakery was recommended to us by a local. We had been warned not to be put off by the appearance. Although the cakes do not look amazing, they are absolutely wonderful. Highly recommend the ricotta cake.
