    This was a very interesting tour in itself. additionally, our tour guide was among the best I've had on any Viator tour. He provided a great deal of information and cheerfully answered our many questions. Keep him in your retinue!

    This was my third trip to Rome -- this museum the most amazing event of all. Not to be missed. Also our private guide booked through Viator was the best of all guides in two weeks in Italy.
