Utilized the “Skip the Line” online ticket voucher booking through Tiqets.com for the Sistine Chapel. I hadn’t chosen to do this for other Rome sites such as the Colosseum, the reason being that there is obviously a premium charged for the tickets. I decided to...More

My advice is don't try to see it all at once as it is impossible. The Vatican museum itself contains one of the greatest art collections in the history of the world. It is truly incredible. If you have not visited before... More
