You can do this by yourself or as a tour. I prefer the tour as you can learn more. Our guide was fabulous and gave us time to walk around. The artwork is absolutely amazing but you cannot take pictures inside the chapel. Just absorb...More

The only way to take a Vatican Museum tour. Take this tour and skip the long lines. I felt like a VIP. Our tour guide Simonetta was extremely knowledgeable and had a passion for her tours.

I booked a tour that started at 7.30. It was fantastic to walk along the long empty, richly decorated corridors with the guide towards the Sistine Chapel. Also being able to experience the Chapel itself with all its magnificent paintings in peace is well worth...More

Bought tickets with beat the queue included which is extremely necessary looking at how long the queues were. The snaking line through all the peripheral museums was very interesting and must house one of the most extensive collection of artwork and ancient artifacts in the...More

We were taking a belated honeymoon by doing a one month "Grand Tour" of Europe. Our schedule only allowed us to have two days in Rome where we have never been. We don't like group tours since we like to ask questions and able 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
