We're so glad you enjoyed the Vatican Behind the Scenes tour and had such a marvelous time with our guide, Barbara. The Behind the Scenes tour is very special and we loved reading about how you appreciated being able to see rooms and masterpieces not normally open to the general public. Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review. Angelo and Kristin

LivItaly guides are the best! Young, informative yet entertaining, not just factual but with a knowledge of the culture, political controversies of the Romans. They make it feel like you lived through that era! Very personal! Cannot say enough to recommend them!

It's wonderful to read how much you enjoyed the Vatican tour and appreciated our guides. Part of understanding today's Italian culture and politics is to know the history, culture and development over its long 2000+ year past. We love that you made this connection and thank you for taking the time to share this with us. We hope to see you again soon. Angelo and Kristin

The decision to get up early and get into the Vatican early in the morning was definitely the correct one! We were met by our guide Donata and she took really good care of us! We saw the Sistine Chapel first of all (missing the museums to get there before everyone else).
