  • Didn't like this tour as the guide had a very strong accent and the little radio things were difficult to use and the ear plug was very uncomfortable and would not stay in my ear and the guide gave several very long talks at the place we first met and at several places completely outside the Vatican with nothing to look at when we knew the Vatican museum has something like 9 miles of things to look at so in the end we didn't see the Eutrucian sp? exhibits or the famous Raphael rooms and I am sure lots of other things we could have seen in the hours spent outside looking at walls and people walking in the street
