Skip the Line: Crypts and Roman Catacombs Small Group Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was the most macabre tour but possibly the most moving. Combining the first century catacombs outside Rome and the Capuchin crypts was perfect. But who would think to make chapels out of bones and skulls? There was minimal walking and the bus to the catacombs gave views of much of the city we would have missed. Our guide Vincenzo was excellent in his knowledge and attitude.

Papal Blessing at Castelgandolfo Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The 2-3 hour wait outside and inside the residence was worth it. The village was charming and nearby scenery beautiful. We were within 25 feet of Il Papa who spoke from his balcony. This was a very emotional experience and very well organized. The only question was the initial visit to a Vatican gift shop near St. Peter's before heading to Castelgandolfo. The stop was a waste of time and very inappropriate. I don't know if this is standard or someone got a kickback. It couldn't detract from the amazing experience of the day.
