Overview
Itinerary
  • You'll start at
    Viale Giulio Cesare, 241
    Viale Giulio Cesare, 241, 00192 Roma RM, Italy
    The easiest way to reach the meeting point is via the metro on the A line, and we recommend getting off at the stop "Ottaviano". Climb the stairs up to the station and take the last exit on the left. Go up the stairs to the street. Stay on the left-hand side of the road and walk past the news-stand towards Via Leone IV, approximately 2 blocks. The flower stand is located on the corner of Viale Giulio Cesare and Via Leone IV. There is a Burger King directly across the street from the flower stand.

This tour was the only one we pre-booked. We committed to not overbooking our selves and enjoying being in Rome, Italy. We never imagined we would feel honored to have been able to have Lorenzo - a true maestro - as our guide. His passion for his field of expertise was

I cannot recommend this tour enough! Our tour guide, John, was so accommodating and knowledgeable. This is a lengthy tour but I am convinced it is the only way to really see and appreciate the Vatican, St. Peter's, and the Sistine Chapel. As mentioned, John, our guide was

We are truly grateful to you for your recommendation of not only our Vatican tour but also of your guide, John. The Vatican Museums are a maze of corridors and rooms filled with treasures and other than easily getting lost, one can equally easily miss gems which only a seasoned guide would know to point out. Being accompanied by such an educated gentleman - who is also tall which helps as he can often see across the crowds in order to gauge where they're heading so we can go in other direction - makes a Vatican adventure so much more pleasurable. How lovely that you had a very specific piece of art you wanted to see and he was able make sure we were able to pass by, John always goes above and beyond the call of duty making him really one of the best guides on the circuit and we are very proud to have him continue to be part of our TEam! Thank you, thank you, thank YOU for such a terrific review, John will be so very pleased to see it. PIps

We never tire of reading feedback about our enchanting Enrica and so happy you enjoyed her company during your stay in Rome and at the Vatican. Her passion for archaeological and art history is evident and she loves nothing more than to share her extensive knowledge with her guests. The Vatican Museums play host to so many treasures, it takes a real professional to know which pieces are most worth showing you and Enrica goes over and beyond to ensure that you leave us with a better understanding of the history and eager to come back for more: your review shows us that she achieved exactly that! Yes, be sure to contact us when you are planning your next trip, our Angels and Demons private tour is a magical itinerary where we visit some of Rome's most stunning churches such as Santa Maria della Vittoria, which is often sadly overlooked by visitors, it's quite something! Thank you for your wonderful review which Enrica will be thrilled to see - many congratulations from us all and we are truly honoured you chose to spend such a momentous occasion with us. Pips

Dear Luckybay2014, Thank you very much for your excellent review: we truly love receiving reviews like yours! We are truly grateful that you took the time to write such a lovely feedback. Guia is indeed an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and skilled. With her Master's Degree in art History she has the perfect background for showing around the Vatican and describing its never ending treasures. We are glad that you appreciated also her talent as a storyteller, she is very good at putting everything into context, so that instead of seeing just "pieces" and dates, you are able to see the bigger picture and follow her narration which is always very interesting and engaging. Thank you for choosing us, we hope to see you soon back on our tours, maybe also in Florence, Pompeii or Venice! Arrivederci, Francesca

It takes an experienced and talented guide to not only navigate these busy museums but also what parts are the highlights and most important historically to show our groups and Eugenia absolutely fits the bill. An outstanding professional who has walked these corridors for many years, she knows all the best routes to avoid the largest crowd but the main artworks to include and how to untangle and reconstruct the complex history of the Catholic Church presenting it to her guests in a manner which is easy to follow and fun to learn about. Not an easy feat but Eugenia does it with such flair and ease, the perfect companion for our Vatican Museums tour. Thank you truly for your 5-star review!
