Vatican crowds…are you ready?

Yesterday (Saturday, April 3) was one of the worst days in my entire career as a guide inside the Vatican Museums! In the afternoon the crowds were awful and the Vatican museums  wardens had to stop people in the halls because it was impossible to go on.

Here are a couple of pictures taken with my cell phone when I was stuck for some 20 minutes with my group in the Greek Cross room! And this was not the only time we were stopped!

The Vatican Museums  will reopen on Tuesday after 2 days being closed so other crowds are expected…

I am looking forward to the end of  this Easter week so the situation will go back to normality. What made things worse yesterday was that Saint Peter’s Basilica was closed for a Pope’s  Mass and there was only one exit open  from the Museums.
