The Vatican is amazing! The Long Q to enter is not worth the ticket savings and time. Pay a little more n get in to spend more time inside. Go for the professional guided tours, the history n knowledge they have is so interesting.

Really good tour guide who took interest in the group and was very informative. Definitely worth paying extra to get in early before the hoards decdended. We were out at 11am with plenty of time to see other sights.

Beautiful guided tour through the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, and the grounds. So much history and awe inspiring architecture. Strongly recommend booking a guided tour, and immerse in the history of this beautiful place.

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only
business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the
tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as

Online purchase should be skip the line. But you can also buy from vendors outside the Vatican which are also skip the line. We managed to haggle a discount this way.
