Wow! The Vatican is just so breathtaking! I recommend everyone who is in Rome to go there !!! Regardless of whether it is religious or not! The tour was very informative, well organized and our tour guide showed us around the different rooms with great charm! Despite 3.5 hours of guided tour it was not boring or exhausting, because the whole Vatican is an experience in itself!
