Visited Rome in march 2017. Booked a half day guided tour with skip the line tickets for Vatican museum, Sistine chapel and St. Peter's basilica. Money well spent. Our guide enza was fantastic. She was extremely knowledgable and gave us great insights into the history of Rome , the important artworks in the museum and their origins and inspiration. If... More

Tour was a bit disorganized in the beginning, maybe to be expected with the crowd in the museum. Lots of stopping, which was tiresome. Stopped a long time outside to wait for our group's guide to use the Sistine chapel pictures to explain the works in the chapel. Seems like it took forever to even get inside the museum with...

The Vatican is amazing! The Long Q to enter is not worth the ticket savings and time. Pay a little more n get in to spend more time inside. Go for the professional guided tours, the history n knowledge they have is so interesting.

Although it was the last Sunday of the month (when the entrance is free) me and my friends opted for the guided tour which helped us skipping the never-ending queue and really enjoy the visit. We were part of a large and mixed group but our guide, Ribal AbiGhanem, managed to keep our attention focused while giving us plenty of... More

Exceeded our expectations. Lovely surprise to find just 4 of us on tour. Guide was an archeologist -extensive knowledge - perfect guide. No queues. We forgot everyone else around us as we were immersed in what felt like a very special private tour. Great value. Highly recommended. Top Tip. Wear comfortable footwear and ask for Micheala.

Really good tour guide who took interest in the group and was very informative. Definitely worth paying extra to get in early before the hoards decdended. We were out at 11am with plenty of time to see other sights.

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
