Such an awesome experience to have a guided tour and early entrance...an absolute MUST DO if you want to really learn about what you are seeing. The early entrance allows you to see the art up close without people blocking the view!

Gigi was the best tour guide! He did a wonderful job getting us to the Sistine Chapel and gave us handouts so we could identify what the meanings of each section of art were. He brought us quickly through security, engaged with the group, was...More
