So much to see and do, you should take many days to venture off on your own. Take camera to capture the moment

We had a breakfast tour / private guide (7:00am) and beat the crowds for the tour of Vatican; the history and absolute beauty of every room was unbelievable; almost surreal

Rome is amazing - a visual treat at every turn. Highly recommended. Take your time and unearth the hidden treasures at your own pace and you'll love the place.

We were in Rom only 3 days. Book your ticket on VIATOR.com to get the best deal and skip the lines. We only waited maybe 10-15 minutes instead of hours! It's worth your money. Think this way, how many times do you go and visit...More

Without doubt this is an amazing place but let's be honest it is too busy, over packed with tourists and a fight to the last to see anything. The guides take no prisoners getting to the best location in each room. I know cynical but...More

Sorry I didn't do the booking therefore do not know the cost, but all can be found online!
Google shows many agents offering "Skip the Line" for a visit to St Peter's Basilica. I have read that there is no entrance fee to St Peter's. Do these "Skip the Line" options get you through the security check quicker? Or am I wasting my money? Thanks Gaja

I am thinking of booking a guided tour including Sistine chapel Vatican museums and St. Peter's basilica and the duration states 3 hours. However all write ups I've read seem to suggest you'd be hard pushed to do them in a day. Can anyone explain this discrepancy please?
