There is a place that must be seen at least once in a lifetime and this place is right here in Rome. I'm speaking about the Vatican Museums of course – one of the largest art collections in the world. Once you enter the Museums, it will be impossible to stop your emotions from overflowing.
I could talk about the Sistine Chapel or the wonderful double spiral staircase of Giuseppe Momo, but I prefer to let you imagine their beauty until you can see it for yourself!
Instead, I want to give you some tips in order to avoid wasting hours and hours queueing with all the tourists waiting for entrance. From the official website of the Museums you can buy a special ticket that allows you to skip the line. Do not hesitate to buy it, it will be the best way to enjoy the Vatican Museums!
