A very complete and superb visit but there are many things seen during the day. It is sometimes too fast and some explanations on the general organization are missing. To do anyway

Our tour was rebooked, which means that many of the highlights of the tour have been omitted without replacement. The time management at Castel Gandolfo was also terrible. The two stars are only due to the very nice and competent guide through the museums
