Cecelia took me through St. Peter's and I learned a lot. She paced the tour very well, from outside St. Peter's through the Basilica, explaining any number of things and pointing out art, marble and mosaics I would not have seen nor understood any other way, certainly not on my own or with a standard tour. Cecelia is very pleasant, agreeable, friendly and a charming "companion" who sure knows her way around art and art history. I was very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Your guide was exceptional and stayed with us for an extended period. It was just fabulous. No other tour company should be used, if one wants to truly learn. Bravo!
Docent was so knowledgable, encouraged questions, open to dialogue, and made no assumptions about religious beliefs of participants. My daughter has studied church history and loved it.
