    My husband and I were so thankful to have Paola as our tour guide for the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. The first benefit was walking right past the VERY long line and going directly in with her. The second was that she was absolutely delightful to spend time with. She speaks English fluently but knows her way around every part of Vatican City. Before taking us to the Sistine Chapel she had us sit down in a lovely outdoor area and preview what we would see so that we could fully appreciate that masterpiece. This was invaluable because once you enter the Chapel, talking and photography are forbidden. The route to the Chapel winds through many exhibits and with her PhD in Art History she could offer insights all along the way. It was informative and engaging without being tedious or overwhelming and she adjusted her comments to match our interests. It also became obvious, both in the Museum and the Basilica that she was able to share with us many "behind the scenes" insights that an audio tour never could have. Truly, our time touring with Paola was the highlight of our entire visit to Rome!

    My family (me, my husband and our two boys - ages 16 and 12) took this tour with Paola. It was AMAZING! She was so knowledgeable and entertaining - my kids enjoyed every second of the tour. She did a great job of keeping their interest. She showed up with coins minted in Vatican City for the boys. As we looked around at the large tour groups - we knew we had chosen correctly!!! Her overview of the Sistine Chapel was so good. When we saw it - we really understood what we were seeing. She made the Galleries come to
    life by pointing out things we would have never noticed. It is worth every penny to go on a private tour with Paola - we would have spent hours waiting in line and wouldn’t have learned nearly as much!
