Just returned back to USA. In response to your email – one word for ALL“EXCELLENT” – Our guides were terrific and were so knowledgeable. We learned so much and only wished we had more time in Rome – Our cruise line Oceania Riveria was excellent too. I can email you more in detail at a later date but wanted to thank you for your assistance. We would definitely use Nancy Aiello Tours service again and will definitely recommend your services to others without a doubt.
Again, thank you for making our trip to Rome and ,in particular to see the Vatican and also the Pope, an incredible experience for us and one which we will never forget. It was a dream come true and especially since we had a limited amount of time. Again, special thanks to you Rachel for your accommodation to us on this tour. I actually heard about Nancy Aiello Tours from a business associate who gave me a newspaper article some time ago which I saved ……. I believe it was from Newsday LI Newspaper. Also our traveling friends, Joan and Peter Kay were so very pleased and thankful to me that I found you!!!
Have a good day …….now back to work so we can plan another trip – but in the distant future. Also, please extend our personal thanks and appreciation to our guides. They were the best!!!
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.
