Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's
Miles of walking, but completely worth it! Our guide was excellent and carried a sunflower for us to see or we would have lost her in the massive crowds. Our tour was cut short, however, as the guards closed the doors to the Basilica due to an event. We were stuck inside the Sistine Chapel for an extra 30 minutes, which was fortunate, as far as I was concerned.
After a bit of confusion as to our pick up time, the local office managed to come pick us up at the ship terminal, 35 minutes late. However, our tour with Nicholas, or Nicco, more than made up for that delay. He was a walking historian giving interesting insight on all the places we stopped. Ask for him! I would never attempt to walk the Gothic quarter without his guidance. Fabulous!
The van was too small to handle the amount of people that were picked up. I had luggage on my lap and all around my feet. It was not easy to find the pick up area at the airport, we walked all around and had to ask for help.
