Have been in the Vatikan museum and After that in st. Peters Basilica. It takes a while to come in. We paid one of the guides. He and his colleagues standing in a hard competition to get the attention from the numberless tourists. But 40 Euros and 2 hours later we were in... I've never seen such a combination of...

You can't go to Rome and not go to the Vatican though I would highly recommend booking before you go to avoid the queues and make the most out of your time and trip. The place is full of so much history and such a truly impressive building inside and out - what's not to love.

Spent an exhausting 4 hours here. The first hour in line, which I hear is not long because we arrived at 8:20am when the doors open at 9am. The lines got much longer later in the day. It is so large I felt like I just did a run through to keep up with our group and time schedule. So...

Truly remarkable place and full of history from start to finish a trip to Rome would not be complete without a visit to the Vatican from the ornate roofs to the various rooms with all the statues to the tapestries and of course the sistene chapel whis is mind blowing how one man could have painted this

How can you not go to this place when your in Rome, I'm not into religion but it's amazing for its architecture (still trying to work out how they did this all those years ago). We paid for skipping the line tickets (29.00 euros each), glad I did as the waiting in line queue was massive. A lot of people...

The Vatican city is a must visit for any tourist. There are several tours available on site and its so huge that it can literally take a whole day. The city itself is so beautiful and interesting to visit. Highly recommend tourist spot for anyone.

It’s a beautiful and well maintained must see attraction. Pros- Some of the galleries you walk through are amazing and the treasures they hold are fascinating. Amazing history of the place. Cons- Pre booked ticket probably a good idea to beat the queue’s that everyone seems to comment on but we went later in the day and walked straight in...

First I suggest that you use a tour company, otherwise the line is ridiculous. We came in feb. (Off peak season) and the line was still two or more hours wait. We used Rome Around tours because it was the most reasonably priced 40 euros per person as opposed to 50-57 with other tour companies. It was nice not to...

First impression was an upsetting contradiction, as you approach the St Peters Square seeing the Basilica with its scale, beauty and opulence to encounter poor souls in old, dirty clothes, with bare feet who looked in real need begging. How is this possible with so much money and wealth just yards away ? The approach, the square, the buildings, the...

Vatican is one of the places in the world you simply have to see. It has vast collections of world heritage and my favourite - work of Rafaello and Michelangelo. There are several issues though - the ticket is quite expensive (20 euros online, 16 inside - buy the online one if you want to avoid waiting over an hour...

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
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 a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.

“The Pope gives audiences most Wednesday mornings. Tickets are free, but have to be arranged several weeks in advance. If you go to Rome in January, you'll have excellent weather and less crowds. Don't be afraid to haggle with the trinket/souvenier people. They'll sell most stuff for about half its asking price.”
