Later, we will have a break for a typical Italian lunch at Mamma Rosa’s. This is a family-run restaurant characterized by a genuine atmosphere and great homemade food. So, do not waste the occasion to taste the homemade fettuccini by Mamma Rosa after the traditional Italian antipasto! We strongly recommend this place due to the friendly staff and the fresh high -quality food and wine.
After lunch, you will enjoy the majesty of the Vatican, going to see the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums full of famous masterpieces. The visit of the museum lasts about two hours, after which we will visit the wonderful St. Peter’s Basilica, a symbol of history, culture and spirituality.
