We had a great morning tour, with Massimo with the yellow umbrella! We took a short coach ride from the tour company offices, close to Termini station, very easy to find, down to the main area of classical architecture. Massimo walked us around and was very helpful and informative, over our personal audio system. We particularly enjoyed the Pantheon. We then took a leisurely walk over the Tiber river, along the embankment to the Vatican. Massimo gave us some time in St Peter's square then we entered the basilica, skipping the line (and it was long.....). Be careful about security as you go into the basilica, they screen your bags, make sure you put anything even slightly iffy on the tray rather than leave in your bag (as I did. Very embarrassing, it was the bottle opener that set the scanner off). St Peter's is a truly amazing place to visit. Massimo gave us lots of info and we were given plenty of time to take photos - which are allowed outside of services as the art is mosaic rather than painted.
After the basilica, more time in the Square followed by coach pickup back to the agents office. A truly memorable morning. Book with confidence, and I hope Massimo is your guide too!
