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
A great shame because obviously these are stunning museums. However there is simply no regulation over the number of people being allowed in. Furthermore once you are in there appear to be both official and unofficial tour guides. It is a total and utter shambles....More
This place is packed with exhibits worthy of spending time looking at them. The walls, furniture and ceilings are all ornately decorated. It is mind-blowing.
We booked using our Omnia Card (highly recommend) and so got past all the queues. The problem is that this...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 Museums had lots and lots of artifacts. The tour guide said the Museums have around 70k artifacts and its amongst some of the best artifacts you would have seen. We had taken a guided tour though it is a bit overprized, I think...More
The Vatican museum has deteriorated into an almost unbearable touristic stampede! Too popular, too many groups, far too many people are being let in at the same time, totally destroying the experience! There is not a chance to be able to view any of the...More
Honestly I thought it was hard to find something as beautiful n cultural as the louvre but I’ve found a better match and it’s the Vatican. Absolutely recommended, ofc better to go during the time of the year where there’s less tourists. If in Rome...More
I would not get audio thing again. Gave a big of overview and more about a few things, but not about lots I wondered about and was almost easier to read plaques as you go. Personal opinion you may want all that extra info!! Can...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

We booked through viator for around $65 per person. This was a skip the line guided tour yet we had to wait in the line for over an hour. We were there on December 31st! I was very glad to have booked this option. The regular lines were much much longer. I guess it also depends on what time of year you go. If you are going in off season, booking directly from their site would definitely be a cost friendly option. But with guided tour you learn more about what you are looking at in less time. There is so much to see! I would recommend booking a guided tour, the extra money would be worth the information you get and time you save unless you can spare a whole day to explore! Hope this helps.
I would go earlier. The line on regular days starts before 8am. I can only guess that on a free day the line would start earlier. I’ve seen the Free Day Line at the Louvre and it was wrapped around the building well before... More
