My wife and I took an amazing and unforgettable private tour of the Vatican with Bruno Paparello on August 11, 2012. We had toured the Vatican and the Scavi area the day before on our own just to get familiar with the grounds. It wasn't until our tour with Bruno that we realized how much we had actually missed! Bruno is a remarkably knowledgable guide who not only possesses a deep passion for his work but a genuine love for his country. We were amazed at how such a young man could possess such a profound knowledge base and appreciation of the countless masterpieces and priceless sculpture located at the Vatican. Bruno made the various works of beauty come alive as he described in detail the historical, artistic, and religious significance of each work of art! He bridged the gap between ancient and present day Rome. All this done with clarity and a deep sense of reverence to this holy site! His tour was the unforgettable highlight of our stay in Rome! If we were to share any regret it would be that we did not have time remaining on our trip to book additional tours with Bruno! Gracie, Bruno! You are the best! We look forward to seeing you again someday in beautiful Roma! After all, we DID manage to get a coin in the Trevi Fountain! Steven & Karin Moniz. Massachusetts, U.S.A.
