Vatican has a lot to see. However, although my tickets are for12:30, they wanted us to show up early 12:00 to 12:15. Then wait until 1PM for the bus tour.

We enjoyed touring the gardens. They were beautiful and much too large to walk around. Our group also wanted a "skip the line" entrance to the museum without a guided tour of the interior. This provided that perfect opportunity. Thanks.

Avoiding long queues. The offices are located in front of the entrance to the Vatican, the girl who assisted us was very charming and explained everything very well.

It was a good experience, it would be good to inform that in the bus there are different nationalities and that with the helmets the information is in Spanish. The visit to the gardens is interesting, and the visit to the museums may be worthwhile with a guide but we did not have enough time.

No queues for the Vatican Museum. But the Sistine Chapel is packed... Impossible to visit St Peter's Basilica, too crowded, hours of queuing in the square under the sun....

As one of the most sought-after attractions in Rome, the Vatican attracts hordes of visitors. With reserved entry tickets, you can be sure you won't be spending your vacation time in the waiting queues. The Vatican Gardens (also Giardini Vaticani) is a green oasis renowned as the pope’s personal garden where he returns to relax and unwind. They cover one-third of Vatican City's 44 hectares. Since 2014, visitors are invited to relish in the same exquisite scenery that was once exclusively available to popes of the past.

At the meeting point, you will receive assistance to board the minibus, after which you can admire the amazing manicured lawns, fountains, sculptures, and buildings. The Fontana dell'Aquilone and Fontana della Galera are among the most striking fountains you will find in the whole garden. Moreover, the historic building of the Governor’s Palace stands out among tourists due to its imposing structure. You can spend some time visiting the Grotta di Lourdes, an artificial cave designed to replicate its famous namesake in France. Another monument to surely catch your attention is the Casino of Pius IV, a 16th-century summer house designed by Pirro Ligorio.

With your ticket, you can also visit the lavish interiors of the Vatican Museum. It boasts one of the most impressive art collections in the world. Lastly, do not leave without seeing Michelangelo’s revered frescoes adorning the ceilings of the Sistine Chapel.
