The Vatican is worth visiting. The gardens are splendid (45 mins approx. with the mini-bus). Everywhere I read that the gardens could not be done on foot, and yet visitors were walking there. Shame ! Disappointed by the skip-the-line ticket, including the gardens, museums and Sistine Chapel (almost €300 for 5). The price indicated on the entrance tickets for the gardens was 151€. Until then, no problem, we were taken care of, and visit with audio guide. On the other hand, once off the bus, we are released into nature! No explanation or indication of where to go and start. The summary of the visit is poorly explained since it is indicated that the visit is with a guide or free according to our choice, choice specified nowhere! I called your services, which were of no help and had to ask the staff on site, who almost only speak Italian! And then, we follow each other like sheep from museums to the chapel. Beautiful but commercial
