Our guide was fantastic! By using the guided tour, we were able to skip the lines and enter quickly. He was very skilled at maneuvering us through the crowds and pointing out the important pieces. We had plenty of time to appreciate the Sistine Chapel at the end. We are so glad we booked this tour! And the fast entrance to St. Peter's was the icing on the cake!!
