Our tour guide, Jad, made this tour very memorable with ample information, and great humor! The other tourists were also so pleasant. I highly recommend this tour not only for the spiritual experience but for the historical perspective and education as well.

We booked our Vatican Guided Tour with Viator, it was a good choice since we could skip the line and we had a guide to show us the best areas and views. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we had a great experience.

The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its
reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly
300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish
