Am Ende unseres Wochenaufenthaltes in Rom nach den vielen Besichtigungen nochmals die Stadt abzulaufen mit einem Thema und einem sehr belesenen und einem grossen Wissen gesegneten Guide, war eine Bereicherung und schöne Abrundung unserer Reise. Die Geschichte von Robert Langdon und irgendwie auch die Vielschichtigkeit von Rom so packend erzählt, dass wir fasziniert und mit unseren Füssen am Ende zufrieden ankamen. Ich habe noch nie zuvor eine so lebendige Tour erlebt und kann nur jedem raten, an dieser Tour teilzunehmen.
Our tour guide (Chiara) was the best in showing us around the Basilica. She had a good explanation and was super helpful. The Basilica in itself is a beauty to visit. I did however disliked the fact we could not visit the papal tombs. I did read the fine print, which stated that the papal tombs can be closed off by the Vatican, where the guide would show us more of the Basilica. Nevertheless I did not like the fact it was closed on short notice, making us unable to visit.
Our tour guide was enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable about the Basillica. She took what was already an impressive structure and was able to contextualize it in manner that made it breathtaking. While I cannot recall her name, she was incredible guide!
Perfect timing for the visit (the tour starts at 8am) when everything is still quiet and calm, as it gets much busier later in the day. This gives you unique chance to fully enjoy the beauty of the Basilica with its surrounding.
We enjoyed our guide so much. Chiara was a typical italian local. She presented the tour with such passion and zest! She was able to take us back in time to learn about the history of the Vatican. We highly recommend her.
