Susana of Susana Rome Tours was our private guide for two half-day tours, about three hours each. On day one we toured Ancient Rome (Forum, Palatine Hill, Colosseum) and a few stops along the way including the Campo de Fiori market which is next to where we were staying. Day two was the Vatican.

We took a guided tour of the Vatican museums and the Sistine Chapel, with a visit to St. Peter's Basilica afterward. The Vatican museums are extensive, and there is an awful lot of truly spectacular art, but for someone who is neither religious nor an art history major, it was overwhelming and really a bit too much for me to...

We booked a guided tour through rome-museum paying around 50 euros for the privilege (for the Vatican museums, St Peters and Sisteine chapel). We skipped the queue which was amazing as the queue for the Vatican is huge and I would definitely recommend booking tickets online to avoid this queue. Our tour group ended up being about 26 people so... More

We arranged for a "private " tour through the Vatican directly before we left the US. You still need a Roma Pass for admission though. True you bypass the entry lines but the massive crowds in the Vatican take away from the experience . The tour is 2-3 hours long and we almost left a few times due to the... More

We arranged private tours of Vatican City and the Collosseum/Roman Forum with Vito Naddeo. He is a studied Art Historian and Architect with a great gift for sharing interesting facts and stories. We had wonderful explanations and thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. He connected well with our teenage daughters too. We became friends and he even took us on... More

Our hotel lined up a guided tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica for us through Eye Tours. Our guide, Angela Caiati, was superb. She taught us so much, preparing us in advance for what we would see and experience at each stage of the 3 hr. tour, so that we felt we were able to... More

We have just come back from our 'Private' Vatican City Museum tour, incoporating the Sistine Chapel. We paid extra for the benefit of 'no more than 20 persons' per tour. A complete waste there due to the volume of numbers in the rooms. Whilst appreciating 'jumping the line', I found the tour to be a waste of money. The 'race'... More

My husband and I just visited the Vatican today with our 6-month old daughter. We brought the Chicco baby carrier, and the stroller. We were going to check the stroller, but our guide didn't give us time to check it. It was miserable! There were so many stairs, and narrow doorways with too many people trying to go through at...

The Vatican is so large and there are so many people it is defintely worth the money to take a "skip the line tour." Try to get with an large established tour guide, if you go when crowds are small you can get to see other parts of the museum not always shown on tour like the Stanza della Signatura... More

We did 2 tours with Susan - Vatican and Christian Rome. They were both excellent and we can recommend Susan as a great guide, someone who has lived in Rome long enough to know it intimately but who also has an understanding of what it is like to be a visitor to Rome who does not speak /Italian. As well... More
