Worth It If You Want To Avoid The Crowds. Had no trouble finding the Tour upon arrival. Directions were clear. I arrived by taxi – but definitely arrive on time – as timing is key to entering before the crowds do. Guide was well informed and courteous. Did his best to keep the group together. We went during the busiest season but I was still able to get good photos of most of art that I wanted to shoot. (Note there are some limitations. No shots of Michelangelo's ceiling and no flash in lots of places and I was really surprised to see that flash was allowed in some rooms.) By the last half of the tour though, we were definitely getting crowded. By the time we reached the Sistine Chapel, it was jammed and practically standing room only. Can't imagine how packed and slow it would have been otherwise. We spent very little time waiting anywhere. -Lisa Lirones
