Beautiful city with historical and stunning artworks. The Sistene Chapel was visually an experience to witness and be present in. Very impressive. Having a group pass to 'jump the line' made a huge difference especially having a tour guide to explain the historical aspects.

This is a beautiful city (with its OWN currency!). From the Swiss Guards to the historical buildings, the art-it's all so overwhelming! With an area of 110 acres and a population of about 1,000 people, it is the smallest state in the world by both...More

It was amazing to see all the architecture and artwork! I was a little disappointed when we went into the Sistine Chapel, but that had to do with a bunch of loud Americans not respecting someone else's religion and sacred space. It is crowded making...More

Yes there is a rest room on the left hand side of the Basilica (when facing Basilica it’s on the left), I’m sure it’s next to the post office. Enjoy your wonderful trip.

Not all of the restrooms are easy access once inside the Vatican past the main entrance area. I remember stairs near the cafeteria and Sixteenth Chapel. I hope that helps.
