Thanks to the holiday season I finally have some time to update on my almost-abandoned Europe trip series. Continued from Rome, this post about Vatican City would be a short one and more on photos because the experience was akin to visiting a humongous musuem.
So there is nothing much I could talk about. Plus, I am not a historian anyway. We spent a total of three nights in Rome and we actually visited Vatican City (it is located within Rome if you didn’t know already) on our second day.
There are a couple of ways you could reach Vatican City but the best way would be taking the metro. I highly recommend you to see the museums first because the queue could get freaking long (see pic above, and that’s only a quarter of the entire queue!) So, wake up early and get there early, by 9am at least.
If you are really desperate to skip the line, you could take up the so-called guided group tour for around €20 a pax if not mistaken. We were glad we did not purchase the guided group tour, as most of them still had to queue at the group line.
Vatican Museums is worth visiting because besides being one of the greatest in the world, it also houses the immense collection built up by the Roman Catholic Church since its foundation in the early 16th century. Millions of tourists throng the museum annually.
