We got to the Vatican an hour in advance, but the directions to the meet-up spot were completely unclear. To add insult to injury, Headout refused to refund our 80 Euros. DO NOT BOOK A VATICAN TOUR WITH HEADOUT.

We took the Tui coach tour of Rome visiting the eternal city, the Colosseum & of course the Vatican amongst many other other ancient & important sites. It was such a shame to see so much graffiti everywhere in this city.

Rome in July is getting too crowded. Everywhere there are tours there are too many people, somewhat spoiling the pleasure of seeing one of the greatest cities in the world. That said, it is still worth the effort to visit.

Ilona was a wonderfully knowledgeable, helpful, and funny guide. She made what would be an overwhelming experience touring the Vatican and surrounding sites a great experience! Thank you Ilona!!!

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to
its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub,
Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot
