Whats up everyone, our trip was great. Definetly recommend it. If you are in rome u know about the Vatican, not gonna talk about that. The lines are long, the weather can be hot. Keep yourself safe and hydrated and book tickets in advance and always buy skip the line tickets.

I wish the basilica and the Sistine chapel was my home and I could spend all of it here. At least I wish I lived in Rome. Everything here is so nice. This time I missed the pope but I will certainly meet him next time.

The tombs were so high and the ceilings were surprisingly well painted with arts. How interesting!

We all kept walking behind the guide like we are chasing him, he was super cute and super funny as well, well trained at his job.

The old way of booking tickets are not very convenient anymore that is its better to have your tickes bought for you by the online provider. That way you don’t have to wait or anything. Just to and enter. By the way the basilica is free to enter and so u should pay for the guide and audio guide only.

Assisi looks kind of like a Urbino but in an uniqe way. The people here are very polite in my experience. I came with a group of 16 people and everyone was impressed by the church. Wht made the trip complete is the fact that the transport was awesome.
