Viator advised us less than 2 days before the visit that it could not go on as planned. I had to insist that they fix this, as they were proposing to split this in 2 different days. But we were in Rome for 1 1/2 days! So they simply inverted the two sections, which should have been the preferred option from the get go. Nonetheless, the Vatican visit was good, but the heavy accent of the guide made it difficult tu understand all. In the afternoon Colloseum tour, Renata made it very interesting with much details. Her English was impeccable.
