We came delighted with the Tour! You can see many interesting things in a short time, and with the guide you can access different areas to those that you pass through if you go individually. We went on weekdays and were able to enjoy Giuseppe's fun and interesting explanation before contemplating the frescoes in the Sistine Chapel for a while. We will definitely repeat when we return to Rome!

Myself and my partner visited Rome for the weekend and booked this experience prior to flying out. Having been so eager to visit Rome for the past few years but unfortunately unable to owing to Covid restraints, we certainly were not disappointed by the spectacular views that we witnessed in the Vatican City! The Vatican museum is filled with history and incredible pieces of art and architecture dating back to thousands of years ago. The Sistine Chapel is a sight that will behold you as you enter and witness the marvellous pieces of art decorated across every wall from floor to ceiling. As for St Peter's Basilica, this is simply stunning. The sheer size of the building simply is beyond belief and the history that lies inside from the Popes of the past who's tombs lie within the church. I would also like to give a special mention to our tour Guide Antonio who was fantastic! Extremely full of knowledge and was very accommodating with the time we had on the tour.
