Confusing ticket collection process.
, Jun 2022
Fantastic day out, went straight in during a very busy day and got to explore at our own pace. Actually enjoyed the food inside and not too expensive compared to others in the area. Note! Ticket collection was confusing, the address on the voucher was a restaurant who appeared to be getting very frustrated by the amount of people walking in and asking. It was actually a woman outside with a 'livtours' lanyard on. She takes you inside the museum entrance and exchanges your voucher for a ticket. You have to do the museum first before St Peters.
As Advertised 👍

Reminder this is NOT A TOUR! Admission ticket & skip the line only. Which is exactly what we wanted. The company personnel was easy to locate prior to entry and as advertised, we were escorted in speedily past the gigantic line. All went accordingly and we were hapoy with this purchase.
Trip was cancelled on us by company the day of

Title says it all. Our trip was cancelled on us by the company the day of. Via text. We were told our reservation was received but there "must have been a glitch in the system" because they would not be able to accommodate us. Have to call them to request a refund which is a real pain when you're on the half way around the world on vacation.

trip to the Vatican
, Jun 2019
The Viator Rep was waiting for us outside the Museum doors .The queue for entry had a wait of approx 3 hours .We walked up to the front and went straght in .We were then on our own to wander around any part of the Vatican we liked .Brilliant worth every penny.

Arrivare alla Cappella Sistina è sempre un’emozione indescrivibile anche grazie ai consigli della guida che ci ha permesso di trovare l’orario perfetto!
