Vatican tour guide Luigi was fantastic!

Made the tour 3rd of August. A really hot day, but our guide Luigi made the trip great anyway. His knowledge about everything that has to do with the vatican history and building was amazing. He also had a great personality and presented all information in a really interesting way. It made us really pay attention. We strongly recommend When in Rome tours and Luigi :)
