Must See in Rome

Memorable experience although it was very crowded. Cannot imagine what it would be like in the middle of the Summer in the intense heat.

We arrived early and were allowed to enter early, which was great. Even though this is supposed to be the off season, it was very crowded and very hot. Just know that when planning. Skip the Line is the only way to go, though.
Mass confusion
, Jun 2019
While we did eventually get into the Vatican museums, which are awesome, this experience was as strange and confusing as any I’ve ever been party to. Be careful to note that in very small print not in the confirmation or the ticket, there is an address you need to go to to convert your Viator ticket to an actual entrance ticket. The location to do it seems very vague, and Im not sure it’s even in Rome proper. We missed that detail and had to call (which costs me $10 a day with Verizon). The help staff outside the museum is exceeedinly helpful, they helped me get to a location where I guess this company has a relationship because they managed to get us tickets and get us inside, now 30 minutes late for our original ticket time. I see it as grace from God that we made it inside without having to wait in line and buy a whole other set of tickets. Do yourself a favor, get a tour ticket with a guide who will meet you inside even if it costs a few more bucks...the guided tours also get you into St Peters immediately and for free. Regular skip the line folks have to exit the museum and get back into the Basilica line, which is very long. On an attraction note, the museum is substantially poorly air conditioned except for the Sistine Chapel. Wear clothing in the summer appropriately that follows the rules.
Informative staff

Staff really know their stuff!! Great speedy process friendly and helpful from the office staff to the tour guides. Recommend. Only comment would be to have the meeting point for second tour a hit lore organized, a generalistic meeting point does not work in such large crowds.

Place was amazing and is a must see. People with mobility issues be aware its a trek, so ask for assistance if you need it. Also regret not getting the guided tour, unless you know your stuff, it can go over your head, literally. So book a guide. Stunning stunning place though.. So happy I went.
