A Week In... Venice, Florence & Rome March 2022
Roberta was our tour guide. She knows Italy very well and did a fabulous job and helped us throughout our tour. The trip was great but the best part was at the end. In Rome, Tauck had a very knowledgeable local guide that lead us on a very informative tour of St. Peter's Basilica. There is a lot to see there, and the guide was very good at pointing it out. He was well versed in both art and church doctrine. The very best part of our trip was our group tour of the Systine Chapel; this was a tour fit for a Cardinal! This same guide escorted 22 tourists, two guards and Roberta on a two hour trip thru the vast Vatican Museums. There is no way to see it all. The tour culminated in a one hour tour of the Systine Chapel, which is about the size of a high school gymnasium. We were privileged to have such an intimate look and very detailed explanation of Michangelo's masterpiece. I can't imagine a better tour of the Systine Chapel. I have taken a few tours with Tauck and this one was the most unforgettable.
Sounds fabulous. The only thing that would be even better would be a tour of the real thing, the original Sistine Chapel without the Y. 😉
We're thinking of doing this trip next year. Glad to hear you loved it.
