This really exceded our expectations! First of all, the breakfast was first class with all sorts of delicious options available including milk brought from the Vatican's farm in Caselgandolfo. Our guide, I think her name was Rose, of Irish descent, was absolutely phenomenal and informative. The sheer experience of entering the Vatican Museums before the crowds was in itself a tremendous experience. By the time we arrived at the Sistine Chapel it was quite full but we were able to really appreciate it thanks toour guide's tips before we went in. Well worth every penny.
Even thogh the Vasari corridor was an interesting site to explore we did not feel that our guide was very knowledgeable and her English was hard to understand at times. But the most disspointing thing was the breakfast. We were expecting an early and decent breakfast but instead the breakfast came after 2 hours into the tour and then we were only allowed either a coffee or a juice (not both) and a pastry (croissant). Really dissapointing.
Our tour guide (Mosè) not only gave us a wonderful explanation of every place we visited and saw, but his explanations gave us a total perspective of what Venice and and their hostory and people were at the diferente points in history. Absolutely marvelous!!!
OK but we signed up fo an English language tour but they also added a French speaking group so everything took twice the time. We didn't get what we paid for.
