I am so very happy to answer these questions, as we could not have been more pleased with your services!
Your agency and the excellent customer service will be first in my line of recommendations from our recent travels. Everything you arranged was professional and with stellar guides.
While Filipo might be better suited for adult only tours, he tried very hard with the girls. But clearly his passion and proud Roman education is contagious…but maybe a little esoteric for smaller children. However, his enthusiasm for his city made us all appreciate the beauty and history of Rome, that much more.
However, Nadia in Venice was perfect with our 9 year old twin daughters. She even sent us parents out of the room to better plan a surprise for us with the girls assistance. From hidden gems to the way to maneuver the streets and alleys of Venice, she was a wealth of information. We loved her affectionate ways and her desire to show us her beloved city.
As this was the first time in our lives, we ever used a travel specialist, we were hesitant at first. But since we had the girls with us, we thought it better to use a professional service. We were so right and so blessed to have found this in Nancy Aiello Tours. I believe I first read about you from something that originated in Travel and Leisure, but honestly, it has been too many months now since I began my exhaustive research.
The value for my money was perfect, because our tours were priceless. Without a doubt, we would have missed the perfect moments and not discovered the hidden gems, if it wasn’t for Filipo and Nadia. I thank you for finding such delightful personalities to spend our afternoons with us. And to be fair, none of this would have happened without Rachel in your front office. Her communication was speedy, spot on and completely reliable. I hope you know what a treasure you have in her since she is your first line of communication.
I wish your company continued success and look forward to our return visit, in no small part because of your expertise.
PRIVATE SKIP THE LINE JEWISH VATICAN TOUR
Visited by over six million people per year the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel play an essential part in your Roman experience. The Museums hold one of the largest and richest art collections in the world. Ranging from classical statues to contemporary works the endless masterpieces are awe inspiring. Spanning over 9 miles and containing 20,000 objects on display this vast museum can prove daunting to the visitor. With this in mind, we have designed a Jewish Vatican tour focusing on the most interesting bits with the insights of our passionate, brilliant and inspired guides. Hear the storied history behind the treasures you see with a special focus on the Jewish symbols and allusions depicted in the Sistine Chapel. As you travel back in time, your guide familiar with the collection will share a mix of historical information and surprising details with you.
The Vatican’ Sistine Chapel, the site of papal ceremonies used by the Cardinals for their election of a new Pope, is also a masterpiece of history of art. Furthermore, the Sistine Chapel itself matches the proportions of King Solomon’s Temple as described in the Old Testament. The vibrancy of the colorful biblical characters and the way Michelangelo decorated the 12,000 square feet vault never fails to inspire. Our Jewish Vatican tour will immerse you in the breathtaking art and history of Michelangelo Sistine Chapel. Learn about the techniques, hidden symbols and messages depicted in the heart of the Vatican. The chapel’s awe-inspiring ceiling portrays nine episodes from the book of Genesis the highlight of which is the Creation of Adam. The main altar wall illustrates The Last Judgement. The artist used secret messages that advocate for a reconciliation between Christianity and Judaism. When the Vatican private tour is over, either you can stay in the Museums or get skip the line access to explore St. Peter’s Basilica on your own.
