I am banging my head in frustration. . . So much (great!) info is out there, but I'm having trouble figuring some things out for visiting the Vatican.
We are a family traveling with my husband's parents -- 9 total (4 adults, 4 teenagers, and a toddler.) We'd like to visit the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basillica. . . the works.
Obviously, avoiding long lines is helpful.
We want to understanding and appreciate what we are seeing.
Do you recommend getting tickets and doing the Vatican sponsored tour? (How long is it?) Buying online from the Vatican site with a 4Euro fee per ticket adds up quickly.
Would it be better to go with a tour agency / organization? Especially since there is a larger group of us? And is there one recommended?
I'm just really feeling overwhelmed and lost with this maze of information.
