If you are a Catholic and an admirer of our pope, I clearly recommend the tour as it takes you to the places where he was born, lived, studied and worked, giving you a better understanding of the rationale behind his acts and thoughts. Our guide, Pablo was very good in explaining all his "regular citizen" activities and life.
