Went today with friends. It is late main it was pretty hard. I don't know if I would go in August. This was one of the most amazing things I have ever experienced. The work of the Masters was amazing... Especially the Sistine Chapel. The figures looked almost three dimensional! You could feel the history oozing from the walls!

Whatever your religion this really is a place to visit to experience the museuems and the granduer of the architecture, sculptures and paintings. The Sistine Chapel is beautiful and would highly recommend a tour guide to appreciate the finer details of the Vatican and musuem.

Have been in the Vatikan museum and After that in st. Peters Basilica. It takes a while to come in. We paid one of the guides. He and his colleagues standing in a hard competition to get the attention from the numberless tourists. But 40 Euros and 2 hours later we were in... I've never seen such a combination of...

You can't go to Rome and not go to the Vatican though I would highly recommend booking before you go to avoid the queues and make the most out of your time and trip. The place is full of so much history and such a truly impressive building inside and out - what's not to love.

Spent an exhausting 4 hours here. The first hour in line, which I hear is not long because we arrived at 8:20am when the doors open at 9am. The lines got much longer later in the day. It is so large I felt like I just did a run through to keep up with our group and time schedule. So...

Truly remarkable place and full of history from start to finish a trip to Rome would not be complete without a visit to the Vatican from the ornate roofs to the various rooms with all the statues to the tapestries and of course the sistene chapel whis is mind blowing how one man could have painted this

How can you not go to this place when your in Rome, I'm not into religion but it's amazing for its architecture (still trying to work out how they did this all those years ago). We paid for skipping the line tickets (29.00 euros each), glad I did as the waiting in line queue was massive. A lot of people...

The Vatican city is a must visit for any tourist. There are several tours available on site and its so huge that it can literally take a whole day. The city itself is so beautiful and interesting to visit. Highly recommend tourist spot for anyone.

It’s a beautiful and well maintained must see attraction. Pros- Some of the galleries you walk through are amazing and the treasures they hold are fascinating. Amazing history of the place. Cons- Pre booked ticket probably a good idea to beat the queue’s that everyone seems to comment on but we went later in the day and walked straight in...

First I suggest that you use a tour company, otherwise the line is ridiculous. We came in feb. (Off peak season) and the line was still two or more hours wait. We used Rome Around tours because it was the most reasonably priced 40 euros per person as opposed to 50-57 with other tour companies. It was nice not to...

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.

“The Pope gives audiences most Wednesday mornings. Tickets are free, but have to be arranged several weeks in advance. If you go to Rome in January, you'll have excellent weather and less crowds. Don't be afraid to haggle with the trinket/souvenier people. They'll sell most stuff for about half its asking price.”
