Vatican Museums

I know that the lines are very long to buy tickets,aside from getting there at 2PM and not having much time to get the most out of the visit,would arriving very early help in anyway.

We got there around 9:00 am and the line was already super long. Like, really long. The best tip Rick gives is to fax the Vatican and book a tour. We booked for the 10:30 am tour so we walked right past the line at 10:00 and got let in right away. It was perfect. Your day doesn't get ruined by waiting in a line.

I got there at 6:30....first in line. I was the designation holder and the rest of my group (4 people) arrived at 9....when the gate opened at 10 we were the first non-tour group people in. Of course, you need the sacrificial lamb who is willing to spend the time in line! It was worth it though!
