My wife and I will be visiting Rome for the first time in December and was curious as to why you hear about the lines being very long to get into the Vatican.
Does it take a long time just to get a ticket for the tour or entrance fee?
Do you get to meet the pope individually ,is the what take the time ?
Is it just a slow process to tour the site ?
What can we expect to see while their ?
I have heard you can buy tickets and bypass the long lines ?
Not to sound stupid ,but Can someone give me more education on the Vatican ,Is it just home to the Pope or is thier more significant to this holy land.
