The tour was great, the skip the line ticket was not needed because the tour started late in the day and there was no one in line. The tour itself was great, our guide was fantastic but people were not paying attention in the Sistine Chapel which caused us to waste time. Otherwise it was great, definitely recommend it.
Together with wife and daughter we visited first time Vatican City. It cost somewhat but It was definetely worth the 3 hours we went to see the museum, chapel and basilic. We saw before notre dame and sacre coer in Paris which also are good but when you See Vatican city first I think those others are much less rated.
Absolutely recommend it! :) NB! Church is not open on the 7.30 pm tour.
Elizabeth knew several facts and points of interest about the sights and the artists.
Italian speaking Brazilian Portuguese. Being Portuguese it made me a little insecure. I was wrong. The lady knew what she was talking about and was really informative.
