I've seen the square a lot more crowded than that.
That is absolutely hilarious. Thanks for making me smile today!
i forgot to say that I really enjoyed the video. It's certainly better than your average tourist video!
Thank you. I'm only 5'1" so a was a little overwhelmed with all the people. Fortunately, most things were up high so I could see!
The square wasn't as crowded as inside the museum, basilica & chapel.
I loved my visit, but I would like to go back in the afternoon when it is less crowded.
Thanks for sharing.. :)
We had a SIMILAR experience on a thursday. I didnt know this was such a HIGH SEASON.
I went to the Vatican museums once in August. The crowds were unbelievable. There was no air conditioning inside. In the Sistine Chapel, there was a visible cloud of humidity suspended in the air.
Never again! I wish they would limit the number of people inside at any one time, as many museums do (the Uffizi, for example). I would be happy to have a reservations only policy if I could be sure to be able to enjoy the experience more.
It would also help if they would have a separate entrance for people who *only* want to see the Sistine Chapel, or move the main entrance nearer the Sistine Chapel. (There is another door there.) Most of the people who are crowding the main galleries are just en route to the Sistine Chapel, but they have to walk a great distance right through galleries where other people are trying to see the art.
