Overview

The Vatican museums are one of the world's most visited museum complexes and undoubtedly on Rome's "must see" list. Yet with long lines, crowds and its sheer scale, it is easy for people to end up overwhelmed and exhausted. Don't let that happen to you! Imagine walking through these magnificently adorned halls without the noise of thousands bustling tourists and when only 10% of the usual crowds are present; It's almost like having the place to yourself!
