Vatican Museums Tour

May in Rome can be a very busy period especially the Vatican Museums. Therefore when visiting the major sights you can spend quite a lot of time in lines waiting to get in, so for those of you that are not partial to spend time waiting in lines i would recommend a guided tour of the Vatican Museums on which would include your skip the line tickets therefore passing all the lines and with the aid of a tour guide to explain the wonders of the museums and also taking a tour with a guide you are able to skip the lines of the Basilica of St Peter's.
