Very instructive visit that allows us to better understand the junction between the period of the Roman emperors and the use to be a residence of the popes. Also accompanied by a wonderful guide, scholar, patience and kindness. Many thanks to Carla.

Super leadership, super guide with a lot of knowledge, time very well divided. It doesn't get any better.

Guided tour for the two of us alone with a great tour guide who speaks German as her mother tongue.
