Excellent tour !
We joined this tour just few days before Easter and it was beyond our expectations.
While the Vatican Museums were overcrowded, we had a very fast access to the St Peter’s Basilica. The tour covers all the levels of the Basilica. The history we learned and the view we had from the top of the Basilica are something we will keep for a lifetime. Our guide Riccardo was friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable.
