Vatican is something special and difficult to put into words

The Vatican is something special that attracts a huge crowd everyday from opening to closing time. I Booked the tickets online 3 days before the tour and my wife almost made us late to miss the booking time since she forgot to take her purse from the hotel room. Since we had booked skip the line tickets so we didn't have to wait in the line and we entered almost the last minute of our booked slot. Enjoyed this trip to vatican. Recommended.



Self exploration taught me more.

The Sistine Chapel was huge and mind blowing! I’ve spent almost 4 hours inside and all the magnificent art galleries didn’t allow me to move my eyes. I absorbed the amusing beauty of these great works. Quick entry to the Vatican also allowed us to stay longer and didn’t waste my time waiting outside in the line. Will surely visit the Vatican again if I get a chance to go to Rome!



It couldn’t have been better

It seems to me that I had it all. Yes! The experience was great. I just followed guidelines and visited every room with great excitement. In my opinion, I enjoyed it to the fullest and the trip couldn't have been better!



maxed out our expectations

I was so happy after getting out of the Vatican. It was so perfect. Quick entrance, professional service, taking pictures, watching the marvellous arts and everything I experienced was just amazing. Surely an unforgettable one!



Great visit to the Vatican

Great value for the price! Book the tickets online and beat the skin piercing hot summer. You don’t have to wait in line for a long time if you have this ticket so it’s a recommended one from me.



A must see!

We went to Rome over Xmas, the busiest period so collecting tickets was difficult. Due to the unbelievable number of tourists we wanted to avoid the queues. So I found this website and bought a ticket online and guess what! We were able to avoid the long lines on busy days. The trip was so good.



Quick and satisfactory

It was indeed a satisfactory visit to the smallest state of the world. Without wasting minutes in the queue we got quick entry to the museums. It was packed inside but we followed the guidelines given by the company and happily finished the tour.



Go with the skip the line no waiting entry

Are you planning to visit the Vatican? Book the skip the line tickets which will help you to get a quick entry to Museums. It’s a recommendation if you want to save time and want to stay longer in the museums.



I was on fire!

I was on fire! Yes!!! Not being a history fan it was not normal for me. I had no such Idea the Vatican had this much in store for me. Awe-inspiring artworks, painting, frescos, staggering galleries, and all other things that I saw took me in a wonderful world of historical excellence. So great and mus-go trip!!



Enjoyed the tour but a little sad for not taking enough pictures.

We were four friends and two of us are photographers. So, we are visiting a place and our shutter is staying lazy. No way! We couldn’t take pictures inside Sistine Chapel at all. The gerd are very alert there and it’s totally impossible. We all were so taken in by the beauty of Sistine Chapel but at the same time I was sad for not getting allowed to take pictures.
