Has really paid off! The better place is in the bus on the left (behind the driver) But the meeting point is really a joke! Everyone was walking around insecure and nobody knew their way around !!! Why don't you give a blackboard to the meeting point? If maybe no board is possible there - it has to be inside that you can take a photo of there and draw an arrow or mark the bench on it and send it with the mail or put it in the description !!!!

When you arrive at the meeting point, it will seem like you are wrong for a moment, but the guide will actually come to the agreed place. The tour in the minibus is very nice, you get earphones that you can plug into the bus with the desired language. That way you get a lot of information about the Vatican Gardens. The driver also stops regularly so that you can take beautiful pictures.
