We had a wonderful who was super knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor Flauvia was her name I learned so much we moved at a perfect pace and covered a lot of the museum After we went in to the Sistine Chapel and then to St. Peter’s square and the Basilica

Tour was great and informative! Flavia did a great job. However, it took an hour longer than anticipated (tour was 2.5 hours starting at 7:30, but we were not out until 11am so we missed our train and hotel checkout).

great fun and a lot of facts to learn!! not too easy and not to hard. great idea to explore the museum on your own

Excellent tour, really enjoyed the enthusiasm and knowledge of the tour guide. Recommended.
