What people are saying about Vatican Museums

It was amazing to have an overview of the interesting places in Rome and take our time to discover it, since we had no idea where to begin. Overall we were very pleased and will definitely try it in our next destination.

Very informative. You should always do it at the beginning so that you know what else you want to look at when you are on a city trip. I can only recommend.

Very helpful for initial orientation, fully helpful. Then a second round and get off where it fits.

Rome is so big and the best way to save time and see all the attractions is to take the Big Bus.

A great experience. Everything is very uncomplicated as it should be on vacation. Gladly again
