Plan your Visit ahead to the Vatican

Our tour started at 8.30 am with an exclusive fast entrance. The tour lasted 3 hours. We have fully enjoyed 3 hours in the museum, chapel, and saint peters. Inside the museum the artwork, statues, tapestries OMG nothing is missing! There was the painting of the roof walls even the floors contain artworks. We were mesmerized by the rich combination of Roman sculptures, paintings, and Christian art.

Inspiring and so much story

The museum itself and the Vatican are unquestionably wonderful and I do think that one must see it when in Rome. The amazing ceiling work in the Sistine Chapel left me speechless. I just wondered why it is not allowed to take pictures in the Sistine chapel, since it is allowed everywhere else in Rome, including St. Peter’s Basilica. If there was an option I could snap some pictures of the ceiling. We had the most brilliant guide, who with his abundance of information gave us a remarkable visit around the Vatican. Unforgettable one!

Exciting Vatican tour in Rome!

The Vatican Museums contain roughly 70,000 masterpieces, of which around 20,000 are on display. This collection, artwork was staggering. We engaged a travel guide to take us through the museum and chapel. Our guide was good about knowing how to stay ahead and keep moving the groups by explanation. I'm glad we were able to visit Saint Peter's as well on this tour.

Excellent penetration into Catholic history

The beauty of this museum just wow! We did a guided tour which lasted about 3 hrs. It was well worth the money. The tour guide was excellent and explained to us the most famous and remarkable stuff there. There are many steps to climb. Step by step we explored amazing art and sculpture. It was a more delightful tour than I expected. I have to say that it’s a must-do tour in Rome.

Marvelous art volume

The Vatican museums cover more than enough arts to discover. We toured almost three hours with a guide and still feel like that we did not see even half of the collections. This is undoubtedly the most numerous and biggest collection of religious art I’ve ever seen!

The artistic masterpieces of the history

Standing inside the Vatican museum just amazed us. Once we stepped inside and saw the wall paintings on the roofs, the ideal artistic creations, and superb engineering, it felt like we were moved back in time. Everything was simply awesome. Guided tour and avoiding the line was the most ideal approach to discover the Vatican. We went into the Sistine Chapel where we had to comply with the exacting guidelines of no photos and no talking when visiting this peaceful, important spot where the nuns come to implore. This tour was surely an exciting one!

Marvelous experience, magnificent art

We purchased our tickets from the Rome tour tickets Website for entry to the Vatican Museums. 100% buy your ticket before you go because the line to get in must have been hours and hours of waiting. We spent approximately 3 hours here walking through each and every area and really paying concentration to as much detail as we could. The Sistine Chapel to us was quite overwhelming, to be honest, because of its amazing ceiling. We also discovered one of the most astounding la pieta sculptures in St. Peter's basilica which depicts the Virgin Mary holding the body of her son Jesus Christ after his death. Don't miss it.

The collections are so vast with priceless works of art

We make the most of our tour with our guide Caroline. She made our visit bother free. We go through 3 hours in the museum, chapel and basilica and Caroline was both expert and engaging with his introduction. We are truly glad that we paid to avoid the line tickets with an expert guide. I would definitely suggest you book a guided tour but If you intend to save a few bucks to visit the Vatican without a guide or want to wait in line for quite a long time, at that point it is your decision. Vatican is mindblowing and so much it has is store to offer!

Guided tour with RomeTourTickets is a must!

Since no excursion to Rome is finished without a visit to the Vatican. At the point when we showed up, we were alarmed by the sheer volume of individuals standing by to get in and afterward charmed to find that since we had booked a guided tour we could go straight in. This isn't awfully costly and should be possible on the Rome tour tickets website. There was such a great amount to see and it was a magnificent encounter, but maybe not so much so if you stood outside for three hours in line. So book a guided tour and make it simple on yourself.

Such a variety of things we explored

We did a guided tour of the Vatican museums through Rome tour tickets and it was great. Tour tickets assigned a fabulous guide in our group and she took us through and described all the central parts of the museum, including endless painted frescoes, the hall of maps, and the Sistine Chapel. Although taking photos was not allowed, we took the time to stand in the Sistine chapel and absorbed the awe-inspiring work. You just can’t resist yourself gazing at the masterpieces. Visit this museum and understand it by yourself. Thanks.
