It was great to have prepaid tickets but the crowds of people was unreal. There were no staff to tell people where to go. We still had to queue to get in but overall a fantastic experience.

Very Good

The museum is vast and stunning, though more directional signs would help. The Chapel is a must-see, absolutely beautiful.

Perfect for history buffs like me. The Raphael Rooms were an unexpected highlight, and of course, the Sistine Chapel did not disappoint.
