  • Lovely, relaxed walking tour of Vatican Gardens with a very knowledgeable and sympathetic guide. Her introduction to the Sistine Chapel ceiling was very informative.

  • Nice but not as spectacular as you would think, go to the top of the basilica first.
  • The Vatican gardens were a really nice place to rest and recharge when coming out of the big museum that awaits you when you arrive at the Vatican. It was a little hard to understand that you had to go through the whole museum to arrive at the garden but that wasn’t a real problem because the museum is something to enjoy too! You can eat some food and rest on a bench while the sun is shining bright.
