After waiting practically my entire life to visit the Vatican, I first want to say with all of it's splendor and glory, I was a tad bit disappointed. Not with the grandeur of the Holy See but with went on directly outside it's doors. I was immediately reminded of Christ coming into the temple turning over the tables of the... More

Visiting the Sistine Chapel is breathtaking ! You need to get there very early as the que can be very long , entrance fee 16euro. Allow plenty of time to make your way to the chapel due to the volume of visitors, also it's very warm along the narrow corridors and rooms. It took 3hrs from the entrance to the... More

When in Rome, spend half a day to explore the glory of the Vatican. The grand Besilica, the Vatican Square transcend us to the world beyond. The sculptures and paintings vividly describe the stories of the holy Bible. We spend two half days there- to view the Besilica and the Vatican Square. The sculptures of various Saints high on the...

Yes, the crowds are huge, but basically if you come to Rome you must see it! We paid for a skip the line tour which I would recommend. It includes everything in the Vatican. A good morning well spent - get the earliest tour.

Vatican is sensational! As we approached to visit St. Peter's basilica we were collared by many "tour guides" claiming the queue was 2 hours long, after an ill fated experience with a tour guide at The Collossuem we decided to take our chances. The queue looked horrendously long and In the blistering heat it was a gamble, we were in... More

Take this as an organized pre booked tour w a guide. They will get you in fast and secure all access. Dress conservatively w shoulders and legs to knees covered. Possibly bring a shawl to cover your bases. I can't recall if I needed a head cover or not. The guide will explain the artwork and different areas of the... More

I booked a guided tour directly through the vatican. On a Monday in July, the museum was quite crowded, but I'm glad I had a tour guide to direct me to the must-see works. The museum is so large, Im afraid that without a guided tour of some sort, it would be very difficult to see what was important. Otherwise,... More

Booked a tour before we left the U.K. and boy was it worth avoiding those queues. As you walk through the splendor of the ornate Vatican halls you are left speechless by the wonder of the place. Final stop on the tour before St. Peter's is the Sistine Chapel, which with the magnificent ceiling by Michelangelo would be worth the... More

So much to see I have forgotten some names of paintings etc. We booked our tour before we left the U.K. and it was well worth it, no queuing. We walked through the incredible halls of the Vatican and it's splendor is awesome and utterly beautiful. The Sistine chapel is the ultimate destination but there are so many other things... More

We took the tour that allows you to climb the stairs to the top of the dome and we did the tour that went into the tombs under St Peters Basilica. Both were wonderful additions to the Basilica itself. We did the Vatican museum tour with a guide but wished we had done it on our own and taken more... More

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighborhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
