We traveled to Florence and Rome and the Vatican and St Peters Basilica was one of our favorite places to visit. It was definitely worth it to get a guided tour directly from the vatican and it beat the price from other websites.

Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is

No, there is a line but it goes by really fast. It looks intimidating but really, it only took my friend and I about 5 minutes to get in even though it was pretty long. If you want a tour, I'm not sure how that works. We... More
