I have been to the Vatican Museums on several occasions and with several tour directors. They were all good and I learned something each time but this seminar was so well organized and informative I wish I had had the wonderful overview Ms Galante provided today! Really well done 👍

In her usual extremely well-organized and well-presented style, Livia Galante made a visit to Vatican City not only come alive but made it manageable. By selecting ten sites within VC, displaying them on maps, and then taking us on a tour from one to the next showing some highlights, she created a vision of what visiting these sites would be like. Instead of picking ten works of art, she selected ten sites, so that when/if we go, we can wander each one without being predestined to go see an exact work of art in each place. Great seminar! And great graphics and slides.
This was a terrific tour. I have been to the Vatican many times, and whether I am there in person or attending a tour like this, I am reminded of why the collections are so spectacular. Dr. Galante proceeds at a lovely pace and hit so many of the highlights, including my favorite, all the map tapestries. It makes me smile every time I think of walking down that long corridor and looking at the gorgeous and oh so colorful map tapestries. Absolutely worth doing whether you’ve been there or not.
It was wonderful to see and learn about the art in the Vatican on line. I visited the Museum in person a couple of years ago and nearly had a panic attack from the crowds. Also missed many of the highlights, so this was great
