I read a posting by "Scrappy" dated Feb. 25th that said even with a reservation with Angel Tours, the lines at the Vatican were so long, that they did not get in. Angel Tours graciously offered them a free tour of the Coliseum/Forum the next day.
If the lines and crowds are that bad in February, it makes me a little concerned for our trip in mid-May. My daughter and I only have 4 days in Rome, and we are "planning" for one day to be our Vatican/Castel San Angelo day.
Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks!
