WOW!!! All that we wanted and much more! Our driver, Alex, was amazing. Took us to the Vatican City and handed us off to our guide to see the Vatican Museum. Do not miss seeing St. Peter's Basilica. Breathtaking for sure. Alex then met up with us and took us on a walking tour of some amazing sites in Rome, as well as making sure we got some authentic pizza and cafe. Alex was full of knowledge and information and made the drive go by quickly. We will definitely book tours again through this group! Thank you!!
