The Vatican City welcomes more than twenty thousand visitors every day. It is the smallest sovereign state, with a land area of one hundred and ten acres. Now on these 110 acres, the concentration of general public is more on basically three main spots, St. Peterís Basilica, Sistine Chapel and the Vatican museums; so it needs no great minds to understand the logic behind these numbers. Logic is simple- there is bound to be rush and long queues.
Now there are a few logical tricks to avoid long queues. The best thing is to start the tour of the Vatican City very early in the morning or in the early afternoon; this is the time when there will be comparatively lesser public so a little smaller queue.
The complete tours of the Vatican Museums also take an approximately two hour, standing in crowd and queue can spoil the fun. Here again the best time to go is during early afternoons. The Vatican Museums open at 10 am.
Take a good Vatican guided tour; they can SKIP THE LINE. Though they cannot cut the long line, but they can surely guide you on the best time and chalk out the program accordingly. These guides are there for a long time, they know the trends on each day and each season, so trust them. During festive season, you should be mentally prepared to have a longer line.
Never mind, once you reach inside, the spectacular view of the monuments will make you forget about the long line and other small things.
