A first-rate tour that brought cohesion to an almost unwieldly collection!

Fabrizio gave us a stunningly comprehensive tour for the time we had allotted. Obviously, one could take weeks to explore the full collection. He gave us great grounding and understanding of the Sistine chapel before we entered the space and help us understand the evolution of Michaelangelo's painting. He was delightful - full of historical stories and context and some fun facts I never knew about ancient artifacts. He had an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the artworks and the subjects of the rooms and paintings we looked at, he helped us to weave a cohesive narrative looking at parts of the huge collection. I came away with an appreciation and also a desire to have another even longer tour with him. He was very accommodating when I realized I had messed up the entry tickets and adjusted his schedule which was very gracious.

Gaynor, you are too kind! Your nice words are...too much. Have tourists like you make my profession much easier; we love touring with people interested and curious asking questions. We were also lucky because museums was not crowded at all. Thanks a lot again and hope to see you soon. Fabrizio
