Started with a guided tour group but took my own pace and time to walk through different parts of the museum. It takes at least first 15 minutes to get for your eyes to process the large views and marvelous sculptures. After that it is...More

The museum was packed to bursting and my husband compared the enforced procession like a trip to Ikea. Numbers of groups and individuals need to be limited to allow sufficient time and space to view what is on show. After paying £28€ each for entrance...More

The Vatican is a must see while in Rome. The place is full of art and beautiful architecture. The Sistine Chapel was definitely the highlight of the tour. Michelangelo's works in the chapel are amazing. Be sure to schedule a tour with a guide ahead...More
