Can’t say it enough, buy your ticket ahead of time on the Vatican website. Pay attention, get in the right line, and you’ll be in quickly. If you don’t want crowds, there is no one in the Greek and Estruscan areas and they have beautiful...More

This was one of my best visits ever, you should do it with the Basilica and the Chappel Church, there are lot of travel agencies arrange for this tour with guide with different languages.

A must see when you are in Rome. We selected the guided tour to skip the gigantic line. I would have rated the visit to five if it wasn't for the huge line and crowd.

First, this was the most crowded museum of I've seen. It was far more crowded than the Louvre. I would definitely recommend buying the tickets ahead on the Vatican website. It was like a €3 service fee and we beat a 300m queue. Just follow...More
