Guided tour carried out by Marco, a young but already experienced and very very pleasant guide. Someone who loves what he does and is passionate about all the wonders he makes us discover. Of course, the guided tour format means that you can't stop longer in certain places, but the contribution of his explanations is really enriching and it's worth it. In short, a privileged moment in a unique place!

Deborah was a great guide. We had 2 kids on the tour and she went above and beyond to keep them engaged. It was a great tour. Only problem was finding the meeting point. We missed the meeting point and time,but luckily the make up tour was to be in Deborah's group.

Once in a lifetime experience, visiting the second biggest museum in the world was breathtaking, and you only get a glimpse of the masterpieces of art. Using a guided tour is the best way to enjoy this experience, skiping the vast lines of visitors and getting the best of it
