What people are saying about Lazio

Very glad we pre-booked the tickets using Get Your Guide. It meant we didn’t have to join the really long queue to get into the museums and Sistine Chapel. It was really easy to find the location and exchange our e-ticket for an actual ticket once we were there. We didn’t book a guide for this activity as we wanted to walk around at our own pace but to us it was definitely worth prebooking the tickets.

The Vatican and Sistine Chapel are just things everyone should see in their lifetime. There is so much incredible art there. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with the ticket exchange but that ended up being very easy. Keep in mind there are just a lot of people and it takes quite a bit of time to get to the Sistine chapel, so make sure you block enough of your day to get through it all!

Very interesting tour, the guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable! The earset could be better since the highest volume was sometimes not loud enough and it was falling off the ear, but that was provided by the Vatican Museum anyway

Great way to spend a few hours. Well worth the money and the views over Rome are amazing.

We skipped the line and entered the museum straight away.
