Great selection, but rather expensive as others stated. Most items we purchased in Italy were expensive though, so it was no surprise. We purchased several rosaries made with swarovski crystals, crucifixes, a small statue of La Pieta, a holy water font and several other small...More

DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE. We paid for a pure gold cross. The lady working there said the store provides a service to send your souvenir to the Vatican to have it blessed and will deliver it to your hotel. They swapped out the pure...More

My sister and I decided to purchase "skip the line" tickets to save our 77 year old mum the inconvenience of standing in a long queue to enter the Basilica. The tickets costing €15 each were supposed to include an audio guide. We were assured...More

Yes we did skip the line but were left without guidance as to how to use the audio units which failed during our tour..... Sorry doesn't cut it when you pay a premium and get a faint apology for a lack of integrity. Battery failure...More

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
