Here I put some tips for you if you are planning to go to Rome soon!

You'll must see the Vatican museum when you're in Vatican City! Please take your time to visit this museum with all it's glory and beautiful history, sculptures, fresco's etc.

If you go on sunday the entrance is free but you'll not have the time to visit the whole museum. The queue's are terrible outside the entrance but also inside the museum it is to growded to see everthing good.

Go to the museum during weekday and be there as early as possible! Why? You don't have to queu then!

This counts aswell for the St. Peter's Basilic for the Capitula, the Church and the Tombes!

Get your Coliseum tickets at the Palatine. At the Coliseum the queu's are terrible while the queu at the Palatine Hill ticket office is completely empty.

TIP: bring a mirror with you! It is easier to look into the mirror then look all the time upwards. It saves a lot of neckache.

Souvenirs; the cheapest souvenirs we founded was in the street when you walk from the metrostation OTTAVIANO S. PIETRO to the Vactican city!

Go to the Vatican in the early morning. We arrived around 9AM and walked right through security with no wait. By the time we were at the top of the Cupola, the line was halfway around the square.

Get your Coliseum tickets at the Palatine. We were going to skip the Coliseum because the line was so long, so we wandered over to Palatine hill and found the ticket office there to be completely empty.

Exploring Rome can be a bit of a headache and requires a tremendous amount of walking, although truly rewarding. The last sunday of each month one can tour the Vatican for free, visiting San Peter's and walking up the 312 steps is worth the trek as the view atop is splendid, the Colisseum is bigger than I'd imagined, and the Spanish steps makes for great ppl watching. I liked walking through the different piazzas at night because the fountains look even more dazzling during this time of day.......and I can't forget about the gelato...delicioso!
