I cannot think of a better way to see the Vatican Museum for the first time. The museum has so many masterpieces that there is no subsitute for a knowledgeable guide. The arrangements are straightforward, our guide was personable and knowledgeable and the tour was just long enough not to be overwhelming. A great tour.
We left the reservation to the last minute and were unable to get tickets via the normal route. Viator to the rescue! They met us in front at the appointed time and in we went. The Borghese Gallery is a must see in Rome.
