Alright, this place is MASSIVE so going with a guide is definitely very very beneficial. You cannot take pictures in the Sistine Chapel but you can everywhere else. The crowd can be overwhelming especially because there are a lot of hallways congested by tourists taking...More

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and

cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to

City wonders is great for both. The Vatican museums are so incredibly crowded so be prepared. The coliseum tour is incredible.

I suggest you contact the vendor directly. I received the email confirmation immediately after I booked a tour package with them. Good luck!
