#77 Meet the Swiss Guards and tour the Vatican City:
Touring the Vatican, with and all its history and splendor, is a fantastic experience for families. We were all amazed at the vast amount of art that can be found there. Rome will keep you busy for days and a Vatican tour is very popular. It is important to do to avoid standing in lines and being in large groups if you want to make the most of your visit. Being in a small tour is very nice and having a guide that gets you through lines is very helpful. (Especially with kids who may not have the stamina for a long day). There is so much to see and so many stories to be told that one can spend hours in any room. My kids loved the room of animals. My niece and her school choir were singing at Mass that day. What a treat to hear her sing. We topped our day with a picture with the Swiss Guard.
