We were 2 couples, booked this tour in advance and that saved us a lot of hassle in getting tickets and standing in long queues. The tour started on time, the headsets worked perfectly, and our guide Loredana was very knowledgeable, interesting and helpful.

Savario was an amazing guide. Really outstanding. This tour was the highlight of my Rome trip and I can't speak highly enough of Savario - make sure you ask for him by name.

We've had several tours with ArtViva--in Rome and in Florence. This one isn't so hot--at least the guide Florinda wasn't very good. It would take an exceptional guide to make the cattle call at the Vatican great--and Florinda was average at best. What is advertised...More
