It was a momentum and goosebump feeling when I step my foot inside Vatican square. To visit this place was a dream and checked into my bucket list especially seeing Pope in reality.

I had pre-booked tickets to visit the museum which I would recommend because the line to get in is unreal. Unfortunately I couldn't take advantage of a lot of the museum because it was so jam packed with people that if you didn't follow the...More

If you like art then you will love this place. Grab your tickets at the first floor Desk and don’t pay to ‘jump the queue’ if it’s low season. It’s a long walk through the museum to the Sistine Chapel but the atmosphere (although strictly...More

The Vatican Museums are a bit overwhelming but nonetheless amazing, with the showpiece being the Sistine Chapel at the end. There are lots of ways to see the museum, including: General Admission unguided visit, starting at 9am; General Admission with a guided tour; early access...More

Don't have to pay 100% more for the **SKIP THE LINE TICKETS** Especially don't buy the audio guide because you won't get any once you're inside the museum. Just be there (entrance) after 1:30 pm. All the crowds will be gone.

You will be able to enter at 9 but you will have to rush through the museum to get to lunch at 11 because the food court is at the end of the museum after the sistine chapel

I suggest that you buy a 'Skip the Line' tour to avoid the long queues. We did this and walked past horrendously long queues. This can be done online.
