It's indeed a pleasant surprise to have a snack bar facing you at the end of the tour in the Vatican museum especially in mid summer. Water,water and water is all in our mind. However they were understaffed with only one person actually doing multitask...More

Perhaps the snack bar concession within the hallowed walls of the Vatican Museum is inadequately staffed, but be prepared for poor service, even early in the morning without crowds. The woman who waited on us offered, by far, the worst experience of a three-week Italian...More
