Good to know before you go

Unforgettable experience

Overall rating: 9.8/10
The structure is so big it is hard to take it all in. Our guide explained it all, but by bit. By the time we finished, we had a better grasp of the history and historical figures. Our guide also pointed out how to attend the papal ceremony each Wednesday, where the crypts started, and how to take the dome tour. We had a good time and would recommend this tour.
The magnificent interior of the basilica is worth seeing in person. In addition to the tour, we also went on St Peter's Basilica dome climb. The Dome climb was incredible, and we took amazing photos from there. The tour allowed us to have skip-the-line privileges, and it was one of the most enjoyable guided tours we had in the Eternal City.
