We booked a tour of the Vatican before we left home to avoid the horrendous queues you hear of. The tour was run by Enjoy Rome and booked through Viator. I was a little apprehensive when we arrived at the meeting point, their offices near the Vatican museum, due to the huge number of people waiting for a tour. We... More

We were fortunate, among the available options, to pre-book our Vatican tour (including the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica) through Gartours, and to have Barbara as our guide for 3 hours. Apart from the crowds (unavoidable at most times of the year) our only slight criticism was that, if anything, we suffered an information overload! Otherwise, Barbara... More

Normally there are big ques in to enter Vatican museums, but if you will join group and official tour guides you will have chance to skip line and to have access to museums, sixteenth chapel and basilica. Great history architecture and very interesting stories.

We used this tour outfit for the Catacombs and the Vatican and in both cases the tours and the guides were terrific. The guide for the Catacombs, Katrina, was knowledgeable and insightful, and patient as well with some of the questions being asked. The tour of the Capuchin Museum was awe inspiring. Try not to miss that place.

The tour was great. Our guide Eliza was very well prepared, informative, positive and kind. She gave us a lot of information about each place that we visited. it was very interesting cause she made jokes all the time and we had a lot of fun also. It is impossible to enjoy the places in Vatican without a tour-guide. I... More

Our guide Eliza was brilliant; very enthusiastic, clearly knew the system & there's no way I would visit the Vatican without a guide- there are so many people! Able to answer all our questions.

The tour was amazing and we avoided the queues. The tour guide was brilliant and very knowledgeable. Would recommend taking the Skip the Line tour to avoid waiting for hours to get into the Vatican.

Vatican city, museums and San Peter Basilic is a must if you are visiting Rome. Sad we missed Pope Francis, since we arrived on Wednesday afternoon and leave Sunday morning.

We walked to the Vatican in the hope of seeing as much as possible there andchatted to a most pleasant and helpful official tour adviser close to St Peters Square who recommended a €51 ticket to include a guided tour of some of the museums and the Sistine Chapel with fast admission to St Peters. You don't pay anything until... More

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.
