    I did not have an option to buy tickets directly for the day and time that I wanted to visit. So I bought the tickets from GYG. The process was simple. Met at their office which it is located a few steps from the Vatican. We walked to the entrance, we were handed our tickets, and off we went on our own at our own pace. We loved it. Some people may want the guided tours.

    We met our host at the designated meeting place, she walked us to the entrance, gave us our tickets and a little information and let us be on our way. We are not much for large tour groups, we like to wander at our own pace so this was perfect for us!

    Slightly deceptive "skip the line" ticket. We arrived as planned 25min in advance at the ticket exchange location. We wait at a first office which we have to wait 2min without explanation. Then we went to the 2nd office to ask for more information. And there! We are given a sticker with "fast" written and told to wait. There time passes, the time for the meeting passes, we are still waiting. Then finally we get a ticket. We enter the museums and then we have to change tickets again! Well this time it was a lot more, but still. I didn't see the line to buy tickets so can't compare if we saved time. After the museums are really great that's what raised the note I gave! Is it worth it !
