Vatican Early Entrance

It was definitely less stressful going early...however it was not like we were the only ones there. It just wasn't as crowded as the last time we went there on our own. Our guide was average. She pointed out some interesting things but seemed to pass up a lot and she tried to get out of going through the Basilica with us, though she ultimately stayed with us and did share some interesting facts about different parts of St. Peter's. Overall we enjoyed out time and do recommend going in early.
