    This tour was great! Emiliano was very knowledgeable about the Sistine Chapel. I think we could have discussed it for hours if we could! To hear the background and history prior to seeing it was a great advantage. I found it very helpful to understand what we we were looking at and what to look for. I'm sure I would've missed certain things otherwise. I would definitely recommend this. Being able to skip the line and to go at our own pace was also helpful. We went in the afternoon and found it was not as crowded.
