We visited Rome for a weekend mid-October 2006, and the queues for the Vatican were VERY long on the Saturday. We were on a tour which picked us up at our (central) hotel at 6.45 am and it was about 9am before we actually got into the Vatican buildings, having queued for what seemed like forever!

If you have the option to be independent and buy "skip the line" tickets, it may well be worth doing so.

Incidentally, we bought "skip the line" tickets for the Colosseum from a girl wearing an official badge, and that was excellent, with a narrated tour as well.
