1-They are suggesting an 8 hour tour with a driver, and a guide for the Vatican. Do we need a guide for other sites? Or is the driver usually knowledgeable enough to provide info?
2-Have you ever just gotten a guide at the Vatican rather than scheduled one in advance? If so, how did that work out? Did you still have to stand in line for tickets? Can you just visit the "church" on your own without tickets? (I obviously have lots more research to do! I visited Rome years ago, but I was on a tour and they took care of everything.)
3-Do you tip on top of the fee for the driver, or is it included?
4- Not a romeinlimo question, but has anyone ever done a day trip from Rome to Pompeii? Is that possible?
Thanks in advance for answers to my questions!
