Best day spent in Rome

Quite impressive and so glad we were able to see the Vatican museum and the summer residence of the pope, Castel Gandolfo. Perhaps one of the best full-day experiences of my Rome journey. Our tour was started at the Vatican Museums including the Sistine Chapel with the skip line access. Then we got onto the train for an hour's beautiful ride to Castel Gandolfo. A stunning tour through the Barberini Gardens and tour to the various rooms of the Castle. We finished our tour with a relaxing train trip back to Roma San Pietro Station. Would strongly recommend this. Don't miss full day touring experience. It definitely took permanant place in my memory and cannot be forgotten!

Just mind-blowing

Normally, I don’t write reviews but the quality of this tour pushed my hand to start writing. The tour from start to finish was incredible. I loved the time to explore the Vatican at my own desired pace with some masterpieces such as Raphael’s Rooms, Gallery of the Maps, and Bramante’s Pinecone Courtyard in the Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel. The Vatican train station and the train journey to Gandolfo were beautiful. A special multilingual audio guide guided me for the entire day. Castel Gandolfo Gardens and Papal residence has been uncovered to the public since Francis became Pope.This tour was well worth the whole day.

Great tour and well organized by a professional company

Great combination of inside touring at Vatican museum, Chapel, and pope's summer Palace Castel Gandolfo. It was a totally thrilling and extraordinary tour experience. What a splendid day out. The audio guide managed to keep us well informed. The Pontifical Villas of Castel Gandolfo were magnificent. Beautiful gardens and an amazing view of the lake worth the visit. If you have enough take and can take the whole day I would recommend this tour. My family loved it! Rometourtickets provided amazing services so booking a tour with them will surely make your tour experience wonderful:-)

Unforgettable journey specially the scenic view from the train!

I am so thankful to my husband for making such an awesome day. It was a long day tour but so worth it as we saw such amazing sights. We started at the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and toured the Castel Gandolfo by train which is the pope’s summer residence. Spending the afternoon at Castel Gandolfo was the heart-warming highlight of our trip. We would love to encounter this tour again.
