Put your head on a swivel!
There is quite a bit to see, you need to keep your eyes and ears open. Worthy of an additional hour or even a second more in depth tour.
Horrible Tour
We have used Like a Local in several countries and have liked the tours. However, this was probably the worst tour I have ever been on (for any tour company). The tour guide was oblivious to the group and reminded me of a history teacher who hated being a history teacher.

It was bad from the onset. The tour guide’s microphone didn’t work well and nobody on the tour could really hear her. We kept asking her to hold the microphone up to her mouth but she never did it consistently.

One hour of the tour was standing in one spot in the sun to look at a picture board while she talked about the Sistine Chapel. Turns out she had copies of the pictures in a book and we could have been in the shade.

The guide spent most of the time during the actual tour pointing out small elements of artifacts and skipped right by things that seemed interesting to the group. Before the tour ended, all of the group abandoned the guide. Definitely the worst part of my trip to Italy.
