Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's
I have booked this tour about 4 years ago when i visited Rome, with my family. However this time i visited with my boyfriend who had always wanted to visit Rome. The tour is very informative, walking the museums on your own could get very overwhelming so i find it much easier to have a guide who can walk you through the history behind the vatican. Having done the tour before i thoroughly enjoyed this one also, our guide was Laura there were just 6 people in our group and lucky it was fairly quiet on the day we visited so you dont feel like you are being bustled along. I would reccommend the tour to first time visitors as you can miss so much not knowing what you should be looking out for. We also ventured upto the Dome of the bascilica, which was worth the excercise ( note not for the faint hearted), 520 steps ( an extra 2 euros to miss out the first 200) still leaving 320 to climb and in a small space spiralling upwards. The views from the top are spectacular and the weather was gorgeous the day we visited, it was a perfect end to the mornings tour.
