Every so often I like to post some travel trips and/or updated info for visitors to the Vatican, and today I offer some special tips about the Vatican Museums

If a trip to Rome is on your agenda – or possibly you are here now – and visiting the Vatican Museums is high on your to-do list, here are some tips on how to make that easy, especially in the hot weather when the idea of standing in long lines, baking under the sun, can be overwhelming.

The really important words in this story are: RESERVE IN ADVANCE!
