Visiting the Vatican  (4 Answers)

We will be in Rome at the end of June. The Vatican museums are free the last Sunday of the month. Should we risk going that Sunday? Would the line be endless? Has anyone any advice about how early to arrive to get in?

Thanks!

Which one to start first?  (7 Answers)

I will be visiting Vatican City in Jun. We plan to go to St Peter Basilica as early as 7.00am. And head to the museum at either 8.30am or 9.00am. My questions are:
1. Is there a long line to get into St Peter Basilica at 7am friday?
2. If i made a reservation for tickets to the museum, do i have to be in the line to get into the museum? Or can i go direct to the security check, if any?
3. If i purchase a online 9am tickets to the museum. Do i need to turn up at 9am sharp?

Thanks

Vatican City in relation to Rome  (16 Answers)

Hey everyone. How accessible is the rest of Rome from the Vatican City? I'm thinking of booking a long weekend there for my girlfriend and I and would quite like to combine both locations. For example, how easy would it be to travel from a given hotel in (or near) the Vatican to the Colosseum in Rome/Rome city centre? Forgive my geographical ignorance, I have never been to Rome before or Italy for that matter. We are both Catholics so I would really like to see as much of Vatican City as possible and I would also like to make it a romantic trip and see Rome from that perspective. Your help and advice is greatly appreciated!
Thanks and God bless :)

Queuing times for the Vatican Museums  (7 Answers)

In May my wife and I will be visiting the Vatican, and while we have organised an early morning tour of the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica, we want to finish with a visit to the museums which we will do on our own. I understand the queues can be quite long. We are looking at organising an 11am ticket on a Tuesday as we have other plans for the afternoon. My question is if I purchase tickets from the official Vatican Museums on-line site will this save much time in the queues. i.e. Is most of the queuing for people waiting to buy tickets on the day or is the main queue of people with tickets waiting to enter the museums.

Easter Vigil Mass  (9 Answers)

I have been so lucky as to have recieved tickets for my children and myself for Holy Saturday Mass at St Peters. From what I have read, it looks like this is an evening Mass and that is fine as it is actually our last day and evening in Rome before flying home.

1. What I need to know is how do I find out the exact starting time for this Mass?
2. How early before the start of the Mass should be getting in line since even though we will have tickets, I wish to ensure we get inside and perhaps even get some seats.
3. We will be staying in a hotel near Termini and I am wondering how I find out if the subway will still be running after the Mass which maybe around midnight or slight there after?

I am sure I will think of other questions but if anyone can help with these, I will be headed in the right direction.

Thanks, Paul

How will the Papal resignation affect visitors to Rome?  (1 Answer)

For the next 30-40 days, I will conduct an experiment here at VT using the new features of the website. As you know, VT does not (yet) have a good way to communicate breaking or time-sensitive news that is important to the traveler. While VT is working on solutions, I would like to use the existing and recently added features of the website to try to follow the events in the Vatican and report how they may affect travelers to Rome in the next 30-40 days.

To do this, I will add - hopefully daily - updates to schedules and changes in the Vatican (and Rome) that affect the typical visitor, such as changes to the hours of the Vatican Museums, changes to access to the Basilica, changes to audiences and the Angelus at noon, changes to the Necropolis and gardens tours and whatever features of the Vatican that visitors can access, as well as changes in Rome related to the conclave.

I am posting this notice here in the Vatican City Forum, the Rome Forum, and in the Misc Forum, BUT I am adding all updates to the Comments at the bottom of the page of the Vatican City Travel Guide (. If you lose this link, just do a search on Vatican City as a destination - you'll get one hit, which will be the Travel Guide for Vatican City.

Go to the bottom of the page for the Comments. If you want to be notified of any new comments, then find the box with "Follow" to the right of "Comments" near the bottom of the page, and click it. Your Dashboard will be updated each time a new comment is added.

Of course, you are invited to add your own comments about the changes in the Vatican about any updates that you have discovered, or to ask any questions that affect your travel plans in particular. I and the rest of the VT Community will answer them as quickly as we can.

I expect to keep this up until a new Pope is elected and the Vatican settles back into a routine...until then, please subscribe to the Comments on the Vatican City Travel Guide, and let me (and VT) know how well this experiment works for you.
