We chose the Early access Sistine Chapel, Map Room, Raphael rooms, Pope vehicles, St. Peter's and much more. The tour lasted about six hours and we learned more about the art/history/religion of the Vatican than I could have imagined. Highly recommended.

reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the
tiny area still retains its mix of tradition,
community, and history. Ancient and medieval
architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the
