This tour exceeded our expectations in every way. Daily there are anywhere from 25,000 to 30,000 people who visit the Vatican. The day of our tour was no exception. We were very lucky to have Serena as our guide, undoubtedly one of the most experienced and knowledgeable guides, We skipped the long lines for a fast track entry into the Vatican museum complex. Serena seemed to know all of the on site Vatican staff and expertly navigated us through the crowds ensuring we experienced all of the highlights. We got to experience the Golden Room, closed to the public, and saw some of the most incredible gold jewelry and artifacts from 4 and 5 B.C. Simply amazing! Before we continued onto the Sistine Chapel, Serena took the time to review all of the important details and hidden meaning behind the frescoes by Michelangelo. Serena was extremely personable, passionate about sharing her knowledge with us and truly made this tour a tremendous experience. I highly recommend this tour and Serena.
