So gorgeous, however the crowds weren't too bad as I visited this part quite late in the day, and the crowds had thinned quite considerably. Passing through that many gift shops was a little off putting though

This spiral staircase is the one you will have the experience to walk down after the Sistine chapel almost at the end of your tour of the Vatican museum. It's very unique and first time for us. My thought is that you could rollerskate down...More

We visited in the evening opening hours on a friday, definately worth doing as there no waiting around in lines. It's worth the money you pay to get in. You can probably walk through the museum properly in 2 hours.

You can easily make your way through the various galleries in the museum since the crowds are headed to the Sistine Chapel. Linger as long as you like - the guards are quite pleasant and readily answer questions.
