How to reach Vatican Museums
Vatican museums are located right next to the Basilica of Saint Peter. In comparison to the beautiful entrance to the basilica the entrance to the museum is a bit harder to find. If you desire to visit Vatican Museums and you find yourself standing in front of the Basilica, you need to head toward right (when facing the entrance to the basilica). Through the columns of the Piazza Saint Peter you will find a passage that leads to the street, follow the street and walls of the Vatican City until you reach the street called Viale Vaticano. Turn left and soon afterwards you will find yourself in front of the entrance to the Vatican Museums.
