Must do: Vatican City & Sistine Chapel Want to see what the Vatican is doing with all of your donations?? Check it out: I've never seen such opulence & splendor in my life. The collections of the Vatican are surely the greatest in the world. After all, they have an unlimited budget. We paid the ship for a train ride from the port of Civ. to San Pietro Square. The ride was pleasant & about an hour. The train is called the "Roma Express". We were lucky to be in Rome on the last Sunday of the month, when the Sistine Chapel is free to enter. The map & info the ship gave us was useless, so it took a while to find the Chapel museum. When we saw the line, we knew we found the right place. We waited in a line almost 2 hours. But it was worth it, the experience is amazing, the collections of art & artifacts etc is overwhelming. I wish we had a guide, but we were unable to book a guide in advance because it was Sunday. I highly recommend you go with a guide if you can. Mail yourself a postcard from the Vatican post office!
