    The guide has been very attentive and well prepared. The visit has been very interesting and very well managed in rhythm and explanations. Surely by my mistake, I thought that the guided tour of St. Peter's Basilica and Square was also included. In general, I have to say that I think it was worth it.

    wonderful !! especially since in these COVID times, the Vatican was empty of tourists, really empty. Guided tour for us alone, around 40 people in the Sistine Chapel ... That’s to say!
