Fortunately if you do the full guided tour you'll see all the associated pleasures of the Vatican as a complete package.

Vatican City incompasses St Peter's square and the Basilica and a number of shops and buildings. It is open to all including Peddlers and pickpockets so be careful with your possessions and be sure to wear a crossbody bag if you're going to carry a...More

Plenty of time is needed, and l would strongly recommend booking a skip-the-line guided tour. With approximately 30,000 visitors each...More

It's so big than I ever imagined. Booked a tour via Dark Rome - best tour ever. I want to go back and get lost in the chapels. So much beauty and so much richness in art work and buildings,

Any place in Rome doesn't compare with Vatican, I recommend to spend a full day there. Do not forget a bottle of water, it is a must !
