It speaks for itself, Rome itself is out of this world and worth every penny, if you love sculpture paintings and history or even if you don’t it’s beautiful as you can’t take pictures in there, this is the staircase to the entrance
I'll offer logistical info as you surely don't need me to sell you on the place itself.
We were in one of the first 3 groups inside the morning we went, which meant not only that we walked into an empty room, but that as...More
Please try to keep the silence and do not take picture but think about where you will be when the eternal judge will come again (He said, in front of Caifas, that you will see the son of God coming down from the clouds and...More
Thanks to crowds we were rushed through the Chapel. Take some time before seeing it to research and understand the storylines being td and some of the backstory of Michelangelo so you will truly appreciate what was accomplished and what it all means. Beautiful frescos!!...More
Dream come true! I beg you to get the Early Access tour for this. IT'S WORTH IT!!! The difference between a few people vs. a noisy crush of people cannot be overstated. The tour allows you time to sit quietly with this marvelous masterpiece. And...More
Nothing can prepare you for how beautiful the frescos are in this room. Either do your homework well in advance or go with a guide. It gets very crowded and hot and you will be looking straight up (not easy in a hot crowded room)....More

We paid to skip the queues glad we did others waited 5 hrs to get in, great guide booked through trip adviser, Vatican and Sistine chapel tour, very knowledgeable guide who explained the best things to look for in the art work , would definitely recommend.
Hi, just after some more information from people who have experienced this. We will be taking our 14yr old typical teenager and we are not really in to museum tours but do want to see the Sistine chapel. What are the crowds like, what is the concert that is included in the ticket price? Thanks

Guided Tour - Vatican Gardens? (1 Replies)
Hello! I am getting ready to book my Vatican City tickets online for April - I do not believe that we need a guided tour for the Museaum & Sistine Chapel or St. Peter's Bacilica...but what about the Vatican Gardens? I read in another post that you are only able to enter the Gardens with a guided tour, is this true? Is it worth a guided tour of just the gardens? Thanks!

Rome - tour in a day - skip the line (6 Replies)
My husband and I would like to do one of these "Tour Rome in a Day" tours with Skip The Line tickets - we will be staying in a hotel and not coming off a cruise ship. Just wondered - there are so many - does anyone have any recommendations? We'd like to see the Colosseum, Forum, Pantheon, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. Thanks!

Thanks so much for your reply. (I'm sorry for the duplicate post - I did not see my first post initially and so thought that I had somehow failed to post it correctly.) Yes we are looking for a guided tour, and not just to buy tickets ourselves.
Must See Places for Secular Couple? (5 Replies)
Hello--one of us is Jewish, the other is not, and neither of us is very interested in religion or art. We do want to see major sites, however, so, for example, when we were in Italy we visited the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. Mostly we like history, and would want to see old Jerusalem and Masada, but maybe more important than a lot of other ancient historical sites would be the struggle for Israel's Independence and the Holocaust. I also want to see the Sea of Galilee and float in the Dead...More

I would suggest some of the following sites for your tour: Palmach museum, Western Wall tunnel tour, Herodian, Zippori, Akko, Rosh Hanikra, Israel Museum, Ein Gedi to name a few. There is so much to see and do here it is hard to suggest a limited amount of places to visit, but the links above will help get you on the track you are searching for. Chana Israel
