The Vatican Museum was overwhelming in its size, lavishness and especially its crowds. We felt carried along like floodwaters! Salvatore was a calming voice in the crush. He was able to give us a surprising amount of interesting information about many works we spotted over...More

This was well worth the forethought of pre-booking because it was an excellent tour. I had been to the Colosseum previously in the summer and didn't fancy waiting in line, and also wanted to see the underground this time. We went in late November so...More

While the tour person did a fine job, it doesn’t justify the price of this tour. The underground was extremely disappointing and too much hype. It’s nothing more than just a place where gladiators entered and animals stayed. There wasn’t much to see and we...More

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to

If all you wish is to skip the line, you can buy tickets directly on the Vatican’s website instead of using third party companies and sabe money. The Vatican is very crowded all year but even more in the Summer months. I... More

There is a lot of walking involved, but it’s all at a slow place with lots of breaks. The meeting place is right beside the Vatican museum entrance, and the Sistine chapel is inside the Vatican walls.
