    Our guide Arnoldo took us perfectly through the complicated controls when entering the Vatican and the museums and shortened the waiting time with great information and sometimes funny stories. For me a perfect guide for this tour with great knowledge about the history of the Vatican. The tour is quite expensive, but you really get a lot for it!

    Fortunately, we were lucky enough to be alone with the guide (Professor) who knows almost every corner of the Vatican, a top-notch experience from the beginning, explaining all the mythological shapes and figures from which Michelangelo was inspired. Unfortunately, the crowd did not allow us to enrich our visit any further.

    Unser Guide war super nett und freundlich, aber etwas mehr Kontext und Hintergrundinformationen wären super gewesen (z.B. wann wurde das Museum erbaut, grobe Geschichte der katholischen Kirche, welche Funktion erfüllte der jeweilige Raum bzw. Exponat, etc). Die Organisation lief ebenfalls gut. Das Museum war dagegen heillos überfüllt, weshalb man nirgends mal stehen bleiben konnte, da die Menge immer „im Fluss“ bleiben musste.
