Vatican tour was super packed , I hear it’s like this every day.Rushed to get pics and didn’t really get to appreciate all we seen. Our guide was full of information , the background to the art and sculptures was really interesting. I’d definitely recommend the tour. We were a little surprised to find that we needed to rush and get a taxi on our own to the Colosseum. We did manage to get there , the Colosseum was awesome,although doing the Vatican and Colosseum in one day proved a challenge on our legs and feet. My 10&12 year old sons enjoyed both but it was a HUGE day. I’d suggest breaking up the Vatican and colosseum between 2 days. Overall was a great tour.

Our guide was great, and we learned a lot at the Vatican. It was unclear that there was a 3 hour break in the day between tours. This worked out fine for us since our apartment was nearby, but might have been frustrating if that had not been the case. The Colosseo and Forum were incredible. It’s something everyone should see! When it was time to meet up, our guide did not fit the description we were given, nor did she hold up the sign. Again, it was unclear what was happening and when, especially since our guide in the afternoon spoke little English. All in all a good experience.

Our trip to both the Vatican and collesum were amazing. Especially our tour guide Luigi who took us around the Vatican, basilica and Sistine chapel. He was very friendly, funny and gave us a really detailed tour. His knowledge was incredible and he made our tour really fun, answering any questions that we had to ask. We would definitely recommend doing the Vatican tour with Luigi!
