Vatican Tour!!
We took a guided tour of the Vatican Museums. Our Experience was Great!!! Our tour guide, Azzurra, was well spoken, highly informed, and personable. We were given an in depth review of the highlights of the Vatican museums, and Sistine Chapel. Her extensive knowledge as an archeologist made for a very interesting tour! She spoke to her audience, making references to everyone’s cultures, to have us better understand what she was explaining to us! Our tour was enhanced with close up pictures of what we were seeing, and handouts of the paintings inside the Sistine Chapel. Not one question went unanswered, as each revived a thorough, and in-depth answer. She also interacted in a fun way with the children on the tour, in order to keep there attention! As tourists unfamiliar to the area, she offered us suggestions and recommendations on activities, restaurants, and lodging! Our visit to the Vatican was only enhanced by this tour, as we got to skip the nearly 5 hour lines, through the verified tour companies line. We also realized that without a tour guide, the Vatican would of been a quick walk through rather than an actual experience. We would highly recommend Colosseum and Vatican Tours By Italy Wonders to anyone visiting, and would suggest that you request Azzurra to guide your tour!!!

Vatican, Colosseum, Palatine Hill & Roman Forum tours
Dec 2018 • Couples
We did the Vatican Tour yesterday and the Colosseum, Palatine Hill & Roman Forum tour the day before. We were fortunate enough to have the same guide - Giulio - for both tours. He is fabulous, really knows his history, and is very passionate about everything to do with ancient Rome. He has a great way of explaining the past and constantly checks to see if anyone has any questions. We were introduced to the team by Stephano?, whom we met while walking around the Colosseum - very friendly and not pushy, and we were treated very well by the ladies in the office - had a few good laughs. Overall, a great experience. The office is in Via Frangipane - small but you can't miss it. The only thing we didn't realise at the time, not used to 'tipping', is that it's not asked for - but a tip for the guide is kindly suggested. So that is something to keep in mind.

Highly recommend!
We had an excellent tour with Fabio today. He was knowledgeable, fun and engaging. The tour was over three hours and was at the perfect level of detail for our family. Do be advised that it was incredibly crowded and hot during the tour (not the fault of the tour), but we did have to wait in some group tour lines which weren’t nearly as long as the lines if you were to walk up on your own. Fabio maximized time in line by giving us a great background while we were waiting. Highly recommend the tour with Fabio!

Vatican tour with Fi!
Jan 2018 • Family
Fi is an amazing guide, and even our ten year old daughter was mesmerized throughout hours of the fabulous tour through the museum and St Peters. As we are Norwegians and our daughter is still rather unexperienced when it comes to processing information in English, this says a lot about Fis abilities! Our warmest recommendations.

Dec 2017 • Couples
Diego, our guide, made this tour the highlight of our Rome vacation. His commentary was relevant and informative, seemingly endless knowledge of the artwork, tapestries, Christian and pagan history. He thoroughly regaled us with stories and historic details of the papacy, including timelines of concurrent events. Diego was entertaining and patient with our group. This tour was absolutely worth the fee!!

Loved seeing Vatican and Colosseum with Laura!
Oct 2017 • Family
Our family of four, with two teenagers, loved going on two tours with Laura. One afternoon at the Vatican and another afternoon at the Colosseum/Palantine Hill. Answered all of our million questions; never pushed us along while letting us veer off course to see different items of interest; brought lots of books and pictures to supplement the talks; and, gave us plenty of suggestions and advice for the rest of the trip! Easy to arrange for tour. Recommend Laura!
