What is a trip to Rome without a visit to the grandiose Vatican City? If you plan a trip to Rome, you should not forget a visit to the marvelous Vatican City where you can see some of the world’s most renowned artwork, palaces, museums, and a private and serene garden that the popes use as a private mediation place.
The major problem with visiting Vatican City are the long lines filled with other tourist that want a glimpse of what is hidden behind the ancient Medieval and Renaissance walls. All of the things to see behind the walls including the Vatican Museums, the Vatican Gardens, The Sistine Chapel, and Saint Peter’s Basilica often have very long lines with individuals wanting to embrace the culture and beauty that is behind the walls.
You may believe you can find tickets online so your family can enjoy all the sights, however, for your information; these tickets are legitimate and will not be accepted at the entrance.
