One day to see the Vatican

Jump to last reply

Greetings!

My family of four will be in Rome for a few days starting Dec. 6th. Our itinerary is very tight, so we have only one day for the Vatican (unfortunately). We will be staying in an apartment at Campo dei Fiori.

The question is how should we plan this one day visit?
- how to get to the Vatican from the apartment?
- what places to see and in what order? Time allocation?
- should we need to buy entrance tickets in advance even though this is the off-peak season?

We don't have any special interests, we would just like to get an overview of the whole complex.

Many thanks in advance!

Kevin
