The skip of line and the pick up from hotel was a very good choice
The tour of Vatican was a great experience. The skip the line and pick up from hotel was a very good choice from our part. The italy xp agency was very good and very helpful. The guide was very good. She knew everything and gave us a lot of background before entering the Vatican museum. She was also very good in explaining the different sight seeings in the museum. I highly recommend it to future travellers in Vatican
