Posted on: September 30, 2008 at 9:05PMi just got back from Rome with a group of four. We hired a private guide for a tour of the Vatican museum and the Sistine Chapel. It was completely worth the money at E60 an hour. It was pouring rain that day and the line snaked completely around the building. We skipped the line and went directly inside. Our guide was a art historian and kept us fascinated for four hours!
Posted on: September 25, 2008 at 5:03PMTo avoid staying in line for hours, better enter the vatican museum by lunch time (13 - 14). For the basilica, instead, it is advisable to show up there quite early, at 8 o'clock. Taking a city tour with the public bus line 110 is also a pretty good idea. Best regards, Claudio from Rome.
