Too many too many people, but at least we skipped the worst row. They are well organized and there is a real need, but some patience is required anyway. the museums are beautiful, art and history and wonder ... just a pity that with so many people it becomes more difficult to enjoy them

You need to arrive early, this is an important moment. With tickets without a queue, you can go very quickly, without a ticket you can spend several hours in a queue. Be sure to take an audio guide or a tour. The Vatican is a must-see when visiting Rome. It is better to book tickets tickets in advance, as there is an opportunity to choose from various options.

We visited the Vatican museums on Saturday 2nd November. Considering the particular weekend we proceeded to purchase 5 tickets about a month before. We showed up at the indicated place, they gave us a bottle of water, and put a sticker on the chest to identify us. Together with an assistant we entered the line of groups skipping the kilometric lines, they replaced the tickets for us and we entered immediately. All flawless, considering that in 10 minutes we were already at the entrance turnstiles. An additional 15 euros well spent to skip the entrance line. It is worth it !!!
