What people are saying about Vatican Museums

Great experience despite how busy it is - worth getting skip the line

The skip the line ticket was a great recommendation from friends. We saved so much time and hassle by using this option. Even though it costs a little extra, I highly recommend it. If you don't like crowds then I highly suggest you don't go round these museums or go to the Sistine chapel. We did not go during peak season, but even so it was so busy that we were basically just pushed along the whole time. We somehow managed to get a few of the seats around the edge of the Sistine chapel and were glad of it so we could actually appreciate what we were seeing. You are otherwise made to stand in silence in the centre of the room, or ushered straight out. There was of course an overwhelming amount to see and it was a great (if claustrophobic) experience.

Beautiful and amazing but overwhelming. I would definitely recommend.

There is so much to see and so many people it does become overwhelming. The guide was great and informative. I noticed the sound system did not work as well the farther I was from him so I made sure I was close to him so I could hear everything. I heard a little tip that it's better to go on this tour later in the day (2pm etc) because there are not as many people and you still get the full tour. I would recommend doing that because we went earlier in the day and we felt like a herd of cattle plowing through the massive amounts of people.

Tiffany was awesome but the venues were way too congested

Tiffany our tour guide did a fabulous job navigating us through the chaos and was great with narrating the tour. She was calm and patient when dealing with shoulder to shoulder tourists . She even managed to keep us together . The sites were fabulous( what we could see) . I would say do the tour but be prepared for massive amounts of people and being bumped and pushed .

Guiliano, a great guide, really knew his subject

The skip the line tour starts in a square near the Vatican. Allow plenty of time to find it. Be sure to cover your shoulders and knees. The Sistine Chapel is amazing, please respect it as a holy place, not just another place to visit.

Exceptional, Knowledgeable and entertaining guide!

Our guide was very adept at guiding us through a very crowded tour, keeping us entertained and she was very knowledgeable on subjects! Strongly encourage anyone going to book this tour , well worth the investment!!!
