Beautiful sculptures and paintings inside an awe-inspiring church. Arrived early on a Sunday, waited for around 50min in line. The trip was worth the wait.

WEearrived about 4pm and there were a lot of people about but it moved very quickly to go through.... maybe 20 minutes tops. Lots of people inside but that is to be expected.

I did a skip the line tour and saved numerous hours having to wait in line. Incredible Basilica and a must see in Rome. Unfortunately the contemporary warm LED lighting was not great when taking photos but it is still an amazing place to visit.

The incredible interior will make you open mouthed. I was blown away by the gold on display around the walls and ceilings. A number of popes are displayed in their mummified state. A wonderful place to visit.

Came to Rome for the first time with my family (mother and sister) and was blown away by the Vatican. Going to take the museum tour in a couple of days, but the square itself is amazing to stand in

As Catholic it is a great privilege to be able to visit Rome. And more over to be here during Holy Week and attending Easter Mass celebrate by the Pope is the most amazing experience.

Beautiful inside and we'll worth the visit. If you're Catholic attend a mass or the sacrament of reconciliation..I did and it's well worth it.

As you walk into the square it is on the right hand side under the big pillars. There was a fairly big entry area and they open more checkpoints as it gets busier. We had 2 kids, one in a stroller so we got through with out... More
