  • In-Depth Vatican Tour

    Sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your email of 19/10/12. David was ill the day of the tour, so I went with his friends, Katie and Kris Morgan, on the Vatican tour. Lucia has been our tour guide several times and always does a perfect job. Once again, being with her was connecting with a friend. Please be sure to tell her how very much we enjoyed the tour and her. Buon Natale a voi e` anche a Lucia.
