I can’t think of a way to improve! Totally stunning visit. Empty corridors ( so we could see the stunning floors and effect of the frescoes), empty Sistine Chapel and Corridor of Maps. Livia (our docent) was enthusiastic; so knowledgeable, informative in the best way and polite to everyone. The Vatican guards love her too - allowing us a trip down in the special lift and walking through the corridor of maps in the chronologically ‘correct’ way. I can’t recommend this highly enough. A really special place that is unspoilt by the daily grind of crowds of people jostling for a peek. We could just stand and gawp and hear the silence. Wonderful. Thanks Context.
The tour was amazing!! Cecilia was great, very knowledgeable and nice, made the whole tour not too boring but not too easy. The after hour experience was something unbelievable. I thought we would have meet other groups here and there but the itinerary was perfectly arranged and set up and we actually didn't meet a single group (I bet they were there but in other rooms) and it felt like we had the Vatican Museums only for ourselves. It was one of the best experiences I have ever had, it was breathtaking and perfectly organized. Thank you!!!
This was the high point of our time in Rome. We were able to visit the Sistine Chapel by ourselves. Also the guide showed us part of the Vatican Gardens, which were not part of the tour. It was remarkable and overwhelming. I was in tears.
