Obviously, seeing the beautiful architecture and artwork of the Vatican is amazing in itself, especially in the evening! However, what really made the difference, in my opinion, was our fantastic tour guide Thomas who made the experience even better. He was engaging, knowledgeable and humorous which are all excellent skills for an activity like this. Three hours just flew by and we really felt that this tour was worth every penny (or cent I suppose).
