What people are saying about Raphael Rooms

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.

Well worth a visit, very crowded but well organised

The timed entrance ticket worked well. Security check and obtaining ticket from my online voucher straightforward. It was very busy as I'd expected, but there were far too many tour groups. It was hard to get past them as a solo traveller, and when I did pass I got dirty looks and comments from people on the tours thinking I was jumping ahead of them. This happened alot and I didn't like it. Also it was extremely hot and humid inside. Of course the ceilings and tapestries were stunning, and the Sistine Chapel amazing, but I was very glad to get out into the fresh air, even though it was hot outside

Fast track ticket worked well to beat the queues in 35 degree heat.

Glad we booked the fast track for the Vatican museum. It’s well worth a visit, but be warned, you are on a one way treadmill with hoards if people. It’s a bit like going through ikea..., The Basilica was not included in this ticket, but it is free, and the queue we joined seemed long, but went down really quickly, so I wouldn’t pay to jump the queue for the church. I’ve been to the museum twice now, so most likely will not go again. The basilica is amazing though, and well worth repeat visits.

Easy to get in, but oh, so many people inside...

We got more or less straight in, of course we had to line up for security like everyone lse, but that went quite fast. So no complaints as for tickets! However, both the museums and the Sistine Chapel were crammed with people, which also made the experience a little less grand.

Vatican Museums, Sistine & St Peter: Skip-the-Line Tour

We were happy to do this. One gets overwhelmed by large touristy places. best to take a tour, helps with knowing how to enter, layout of the place, guide highlights the key facts and if you want to know more, can always do it yourself once you are familiar with the place.
