Confirmed with local office the day before. Got intructions on where to meet 15mins before actual tour time. Well organised. Great seats in the Papal Audience Hall as it was too hot outside and they wanted to make sure the Pope did not have to stand outside in 98degree weather. Great for the audience also! Nice air conditioned hall and we got to see him from just a few rows back.
small van pickedus up to take us to the larger coach . VERY HOT day 98degrees. Coach's air conditioning was so low no one could feel it. We think the company was trying to save on the gas as it is very expensive. The actual tour was ok but the heat of the coach spoilt it for a lot of us and we continually asked our grumpy driver to turn it up. Mara was our guide , she was ok but has a heavy accent. The lunch was great .we had pasta with salad and bruchsetta with a drink which was included in the tour price. Lond drive back to Rome at the end of a very hot day. Drive was 2 plus hours back but we were dropped off right near our hotels.
