A really fantastic tour. Our guide was Angelo (LivItaly). He was a fountain of knowledge and made the whole experience a pleasure. Showing us the most important artefacts and exhibits on show and provided a fantastic background to them. The highlight of the tour was the Sistine Chapel. Stunning. It was at least 4 hours of hot weather and being on the go with a lot of walking. Make sure you have water and comfortable shoes. We visited in Covid times so it was fairly quiet but it meant gift shops and cafes were shut so please bear that in mind.

Really wonderful private tour - Davide is a truly excellent guide. Full of good information and humour. I was nervous about taking my two boys aged 10 and 17 but they both said it was a highlight of our entire stay in Rome. We hope to return to one of his tours again soon! Many thanks for us all.
