Reviews for St. Peter’s Basilica & Dome Tour With Professional Art Historian
Basilica trip, great experience!
We had an incredible experience in the Spanish speaking tour! We had to wait for an hour in the security line before getting into the basilica but even that didnt feel too bad because of our guide, Katy, who with her explaining of all the history that plaza has, made it seem like time flew by quickly. Once we got inside, it was beautiful and again, full of history and incredible architecture. The sculptures and paintings, all were incredible, the scale of it all was just great to be able to experience first hand. We finished off the tour with the dome visit which, although tiring, taking the stairs was the best way to go up as we didnt need to wait for the elevator line that sometimes takes up to 40mins to get to. The views to be seen from that top of the basilica were just incredible! Overall, we had a great experience, and Katy, our guide made it far better with her knowledge and expertise on the Basilica.
