Truly remarkable place and full of history from start to finish a trip to Rome would not be complete without a visit to the Vatican from the ornate roofs to the various rooms with all the statues to the tapestries and of course the sistene chapel whis is mind blowing how one man could have painted this

How can you not go to this place when your in Rome, I'm not into religion but it's amazing for its architecture (still trying to work out how they did this all those years ago). We paid for skipping the line tickets (29.00 euros each), glad I did as the waiting in line queue was massive. A lot of people...

The Vatican city is a must visit for any tourist. There are several tours available on site and its so huge that it can literally take a whole day. The city itself is so beautiful and interesting to visit. Highly recommend tourist spot for anyone.

It’s a beautiful and well maintained must see attraction. Pros- Some of the galleries you walk through are amazing and the treasures they hold are fascinating. Amazing history of the place. Cons- Pre booked ticket probably a good idea to beat the queue’s that everyone seems to comment on but we went later in the day and walked straight in...

First I suggest that you use a tour company, otherwise the line is ridiculous. We came in feb. (Off peak season) and the line was still two or more hours wait. We used Rome Around tours because it was the most reasonably priced 40 euros per person as opposed to 50-57 with other tour companies. It was nice not to...

First impression was an upsetting contradiction, as you approach the St Peters Square seeing the Basilica with its scale, beauty and opulence to encounter poor souls in old, dirty clothes, with bare feet who looked in real need begging. How is this possible with so much money and wealth just yards away ? The approach, the square, the buildings, the...

Vatican is one of the places in the world you simply have to see. It has vast collections of world heritage and my favourite - work of Rafaello and Michelangelo. There are several issues though - the ticket is quite expensive (20 euros online, 16 inside - buy the online one if you want to avoid waiting over an hour...

Definitely get tickets in advance- the queues are massive on the day. There is a lot of security and checks before you get in so allow extra time. The overall experience was good, just a few bits that dulled the day slightly. However to start with food good bits: Firstly, exhibits were exceptional- the Egyptian collection is better than a...

We were unaware when booking tickets for City Tours that the Sistine Chapel would be closed as it was a bank holiday on the Saturday. We therefore had to get to their office in the Vatican by 9.00 and the chapel was only open for half an hour until 9.30. It was a very long way to walk as we...

I totally recommend checking out the Vatican. It's was absolutely gorgeous, but please watch out for theft as people have gotten pick pocketed. On sundays this place is packed as the pope speaks on Sunday's. Enjoy!!

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighbourhood Profile
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 visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighbourhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.

“The Pope gives audiences most Wednesday mornings. Tickets are free, but have to be arranged several weeks in advance. If you go to Rome in January, you'll have excellent weather and less crowds. Don't be afraid to haggle with the trinket/souvenier people. They'll sell most stuff for about half its asking price.”
