The history in this museum is mind blowing. Nero’s Bowl that was in front of his palace to the Borgia apartments from the 1400’s. It is absolutely incredible to see these things still preserved. I even liked this museum better than the Louvre.
We used Viator tours to find us a private tour guide. This was done at the last min and I have to say Viator came through like a champ. I will try to find our tour guides name but can’t recall at this time. Our...More

Yes it does. I booked a tour online. It was definitely worth it as I didn’t have to queue to get tickets. They give you a time and you meet at a meeting area. Taking a tour means you will get a commentary on what you are seeing and can appreciate it more. By the way, while waiting, DO NOT EAT AT CAFFE VATICANO across the street it is a tourist trap with horrible food, service and outrageous prices.
