The Vatican was, of course, amazing. I found it all a little overwhelming though, and got to the point where I felt all the grand art and architecture was a little lost on me. We were on a budget and so we went without a guide, but I think it would have been helpful in really appreciating what we were seeing. It would have also been nice to have a little help navigating the museum, because if you don't know what you're doing it's very easy to get swept up among the crowds without any real knowledge of where you're going and why. Overall it was a good experience, but if you can spare the cash I would recommend a guide.
And don't forget to cover your knees and shoulders, or the wait in that impressive queue will be in vain!
