My husband and I truly loved this tour, and particularly LOVED our guide, Rose. She herself was such an interesting person, and was full of stories and histories from her own life, since she traced her Jewish ancestry on her mother's side to the First Century and on her father's side to the Fifteenth Century (Italy and Spain). We got a real sense of what the Jewish community in Rome is all about.

The Vatican and its museums is enormous and overwhelming. It is easy to get utterly lost. Rose was able to show us the best highlights possible in a 3 hour tour, and also to let us know what she WASN'T going to be able to show us, and why she chose to show us what she did. She was able to show us important items, to explain why the item was important, and give us detailed historical context - what was going on when this work was created, and what does it tell us about the subject depicted in the work. I learned a tremendous amount, in particular, about Michaelangelo - things that I have never read in a book. I learned about sculpture, and its evolution throughout history.

Rose was clearly feeling quite ill the day of our tour. She knew she was the only guide who could give this tour a Jewish perspective, so she didn't cancel. Despite the way she was feeling, she gave this tour 100% She was utterly delightful, hardworking, and truly interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour, and Rose!
