Return fax from Vatican Museum Tour ????

I faxed a request for a tour, 12:00 or 14:00, Date, 2 persons. Name and return fax number. Received a fax back. It is a copy of my fax, with initials in the upper right corner "F.B." and the date in the lower left corner "15/10". Is this my reservation????

This doesn't sound like what we got back...I still have my copy and in the top left corner of my fax that came in was a Vatican logo/symbol and in the right corner was a box that said "From Office for Guided Tours"

The fax number listed on this page was

and it went on to say

Dear Sir/Madam
We want to inform you that we have booked 2 tickets for the guided tour........etc (with the time/date)

So, I'd try again!

We also got a form back that was clear we had gotten reservations. In my original fax I included the name of each family member and that we wanted an English tour. I don't know if that info would help, but I agree with previous advice-try again.

Thank you. You are correct. Today another fax came in with a stamp "we are sorry....fully booked." I guess someone in the Museum discovered they forgot to tell me one way or the other. Now, to find another way in without the wait in line.

Hello. We just got back from Italy and had a wonderful time. Not sure if it is too late already, but we had the same concern about waiting in line. Rick suggested going in the afternoon; we did (2:30 or so on Tues), and we walked right in without waiting at all.
