I think a 3 hour tour is too long to offer. The guide seemed to struggle to fill the 3 hours with relevant information.
Francesca was very knowledgeable. I had been to St. Peter's before but I learned so many new things from her. She was great with my 20 year old son who is studying medieval history in college.
St Peter's is so much more than we expected. Francesca did a wonderful job of providing historical context, artistic influence, and the history of the basilica all the way to the present. Francesca brought us all the way through from the Roman origins, through the artistic genius of Michelangelo and Bernini, as well as the influence of the many popes who have influenced the structure. This is an essential tour for understanding Vatican City and Rome as whole. Highly recommend it.
