The Vatican Museum is a must see when in Rome. This is NOT a tour—these are only entry tickets that allow you inside the museum and after that, you are on your own. If you are expecting a tour—this is not it. The museum is a wonder, completely beautiful. Many stairs and many steps because this thing is so huge. You could spend days looking at everything! The museum is crowded, smashed together and shuffling through. I recommend getting the before opening hours tour with breakfast if you want a smaller crowd and a better viewing experience. (We did this also through Get Your Guide).

We purchased skip-the-line access to the Vatican Museum and Sistene Chapel. Our helpful guide from City Wonders Tours met us across the street, steered us through the doors and the mass of humanity waiting to get inside, procured our tickets, and gave us some very informative information before sending us off to take in the museums at our own pace. She even called us because we were running a little late to make sure we were ok and still coming. It was perfect and hassle free. Highly recommend this service.

This was overall a great tour. The Vatican museums and Sistine chapel were breathtaking. The small opera show was such a nice touch. The singers were absolutely wonderful! Must watch!

great tour, very very interesting. meeting the guide was easy, and the entry was very quick. these museums are a must when in Rome. recommended!

Everything was as planned and scheduled. Meet up and entrance to Vatican museum was smooth and effortless. Thank you/Grazie
