Too crowded, disappointed in the behavior and attire of visitors... staff used to enforce requirements and don't do that anymore. Beautiful place to visit, but way too crowded to enjoy it for the serene and inspirational experience it should be.

We arrived at 10am on a Wednesday and saw the pope doing a service in Latin. It was a nice addition to the bucket list. Security personal refused my request for a high five with the pope. Very disappointing

A must when visiting Rome. Buy your tickets before you go and well worth paying to 'skip the line' to make the most of your time. Beautiful sights all around inside and out and the Sistine chapel is simple breath taking.
