Francesca was a super knowledgable guide, and delightful throughout. It is expensive to hire this service, but very worthwhile because she provided a context and level of detail that would have otherwise been lacking. Her passion was unmistakeable and it rubbed off on us. If you are able to do this and also avoid the huge lines, I'd strongly encourage... More

When we were planning our two-week trip to Italy, the one site where we decided to splurge on the expense of a private tour was the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica. Not having any point of reference about which company to choose, we followed Trip Advisor recommendations and booked our 3-hour private tour about a month in advance. From... More

My husband and I used this company for 3 separate private tours in Rome. It's more expensive for the private tours but I highly recommend it. You really do get your money's worth. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of our first guide, but she took us on a walking city tour and she was very nice and engaging. Our... More

I could not recommend this tour more highly. Our guide, Tommaso, was an actual archaeologist and incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. We were only in Rome for two days so decided to do a guided tour so as to see everything. We would NEVER have been able to see 1/4 of the places we saw without Tommaso. Not only did we... More

Francesca was fabulous. We loved her friendly personality and knowledge. I would definitely recommend her and this tour. We ended up booking 3 tours. Francesca helped us book a tour for 34 people the next day to Pompeii. They picked us up from our hotel in a modern bus, had a tour guy ready in Pompeii, and then brought us... More

Our family of four (two adults, two boys ages 10 and 11) attempted to see Rome in a day! We booked a tour with Luca and all I can say is that he opened our eyes to a Rome we never would have known! He spent 8 hours with us, and fully engaged the adults and the boys ALL DAY.... More

My sister and I, both with canes, and my husband enjoyed a fascinating 3 hour tour of the Vatican Museum, Raphael rooms and Sistine Chapel, and St Peter's in Rome. Our guide, Barbara, was a wonderful art historian who gave us insight into the people who put together these amazing places, and how they worked. There was no question we... More

My family of four had the great pleasure of having a tour of the Colosseum, Forum and Palantine Hill with Tomasso. He was energetic, engaging, and most importantly knowledgeable. He really set the stage for us to imagine what it was like during the time of emperors and gladiators. We had a tour of the Vatican with Francesca and the... More

Our guide was Vera was absolutely charming and knowledgeable about the history of the church, details of the art, statues, tapestries and different areas of the museum. Her insight into the little known facts made our tour really special. While sharing an abundance of information about the Vatican, Vera also engaged with my wife and daughter about school, her home... More

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighborhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
