Thought everything was laid our nicely and the purchase process was easy. Getting the tickets was also easy. I did not score a 10, because it was hard to see the guide to take us over to the vatican. It would've made more sense for him to take the green sticker group with a green flag. The purple sticker group with the purple flag, etc.

Eugene was fabulous. What a great storyteller and attitude. The thing that was overwhelming was the crowd?
