Sistine Chapel was not what we expected. I was disappointed. Just not what we expected. St Peter's Basillica more than made up for it. Stunningly beautiful.

We enjoyed the Vatican Museum, St Peter's Basilica, and Sistine Chapel tour is a must when visiting Rome. Get advance tickets to avoid the long lines. We had a great informative tour guide that made the three hour tour very educational and informative.

The best option for visiting the Vatican is with a personal guide. (Make sure it is an informed guide!) The guide helps with "skip the queue tickets" and assures that personal favourites are visited since it is impossible to see all the Vatican has to...More

Of all Vatican tours, this one is my favorite. It's the Vatican Necropolis and the tomb of St. Peter under St. Peter's Basilica. The dusty, narrow, brick-lined streets, the burial sites of pagans and Christians brings the Roman past to life. Excavation was first authorized...More
