Handling the Masses at the Vatican

One of the big challenges for groups or individuals traveling in Italy is to handle the mob scenes at the Vatican Museum. There are a few sights in Europe (Versailles and the Vatican Museum come to mind) where there's almost no way to experience it without a constant and raging commotion of tourists. Even in the worst of crowds, these sights are correctly considered "must-sees." It's up to a smart tourist (or tour guide) to do whatever is possible to visit away from peak times or get reservations in advance when possible. Even with the crush of crowds, I find the Vatican Museum one of the most exciting in all of Europe. And the adjacent St. Peter's Basilica is so big, it can handle the crowds (once you get through the security line to actually get in).
