Don’t miss out!

A very great place to get some wonderful pictures and breathtaking panoramas. We booked the Vatican Gardens open bus tour in advance from the website. It was our best time in Rome and I felt that 45 minutes was worthy enough especially on a sunny day. Audioguide was absolutely excellent. The tour was organized at our convenient time so we finished the tour early in the morning and saw the best places in the gardens without crowds. Finally, we went to see the Vatican museums and chapel without a queue. You should not miss out on this if you are in Rome.

Open bus tour was an unique experience

To visit the garden in the open bus was such an amazing experience. There were fewer people and this made it cool, as we felt like we were the only group in the gardens area. It was a very peaceful, large, and very beautiful garden. Completely worth a visit just to see these. The tour was 45 minutes and then we had entrance to the museum and Sistine chapel by the same tickets. That was an extra bonus experience on this trip.

Vatican + Garden = Enormous Fun!

We were very exhilarated as we toured the Papal Gardens. We booked an audio-guided tour with a bus and I must say it was a satisfaction to see things in a comfortable way. The bus drove us to the entire garden. Just enjoyed the surroundings, gorgeous gardens, flowers, cactus, icons, constructions, fountains in a sound way. The gardens are lovely and there are also lots of herbs, wildflowers, and trees to see. A must-do when you tour the Vatican.

So much fun in nature

The tour was on an open bus which was excellent. The audio tour guide narrated everything clearly. When the tour was over and we got access to the museum and chapel with that same ticket. My husband and I really liked it. The areas are stunning and we were fortunate to visit on a lovely warm sunny day that appeared to capture the excellence of the garden even more. There was so much history to see and feel.

Great experience!!

The Vatican is like a showcase of various styles of artwork collection from around the world. Last month we visited the Vatican Gardens without planning and we were happy. Vatican Gardens are private gardens of the Pope. We took a bus tour which I would highly recommend as it allowed us to be in the open air. It was a nice 45-minutes tour providing a nice view of the gardens that are beautifully designed and maintained. It's preferable to buy tickets online that are well worthy. I highly recommend buying tickets from rometourtickets since their service and support was praiseworthy!

Honestly I loved this tour!!

The gardens were astounding and the fragrant smell of the flowers floating in the air was really a great experience to cherish. The museum holds loads of Renaissance history and art and the garden also kept lots of information as well. This was quite, peaceful, impressive, and an excellent garden. It was a fabulous color combination that absolutely relaxed my eyes.

Well planned bus tour

Loved this Vatican Gardens tour. The open bus tour was much better than walking in hot weather. The Gardens were fabulous and spectacular plus admission to the museums and Sistine Chapel with the same tickets and no standing in line was amazing. The attraction of the areas and all the various plants and trees around the garden were something special. All in all, that tour was well justified.

well-worth the time spent on this short trip!

Vatican gardens were astounding. We found access to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. After an amazing open bus tour, we got to see the amazing masterpieces of renaissance art, sculpture and learned about history. Excellent photos were taken from atop of a comfortable, open bus. Truly a phenomenal place to visit and a nice experience to see the tremendous well organized & pretty garden.

Heaven in the Vatican City!

Like all things in Rome, I was fortunate to soak in the beauty of the garden, I really appreciate what my eyes were seeing. The garden was huge, very clean, very attractive, peaceful, and relaxing. Got the chills roaming in an amazing place. I have never seen anything as beautiful as these gardens. This was my favorite part of the Rome trip.

A must-do or nature lover!

We booked this open bus tour and it was wonderful to enjoy a part of nature and see the crafted bushes. An excellent tour at a soothing pace with lots of photoshoots and incredible views. We roamed through the gardens and after that we were overloaded with the gorgeous arts in the museum and chapel. The ticket includes an added bonus to entry to the museum without any queues. Well worth the visit.
