To buy a ticket with a tourist guide and thus to skip the queue was a good idea. A lady guide was good. Everything was fine till the moment when I should leave the Sistine Chapel. I came to the right exit in time limit which we received. The group was not there. Though the guide knew that someone is missing because before she took the audio boxes from us. And happened what she warned before, the guard did not allow me to leave the chapel without the group and thus I miss the St. Peter´s Cathedral. Should I mention hygienic rules that you receive the small earphope after anyone in the group when we should receive them back before visit of St. Peter´s Cathedral?
