I was skeptical about booking this product as it was not reviewed well. I convinced myself to book it because the reviews were old, for the discount and the price. Never was a better choice, excellent guide in a small group who knew how to best tell us the wonders of the Vatican Museums. Thanks Chiara and thanks gyg!

Without online tickets it is impossible to enter the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, due to covid there is no ticket office in the places you want to visit, so I recommend buying them here.
