For a tour of the Vatican Museum which includes a visit to the Sistine Chapel, visitors line up along the walls of Vatican City from before 7 am, and often the waiting time is 3-4 hours to get in. A better idea is to book a tour with a small group and a fantastic guide. We were lucky enough to book with Grant, South African born but having lived in Rome for 11 yrs, from EDEN WALKS. www.edenwalks.com. With Grant you book your tour and there is no queuing, straight in …. And he is absolutely amazing in the way he brings the tour to life, is ridiculously knowledgeable, eloquent and interesting. No queue and an enhanced experience, who could ask for more. Here he is taking us through the details of the Sistine Chapel, these boards are located all around the Piazza, to allow space for the explanation prior to entering. The time spent in the Sistine Chapel was for me momentous, emotional!
