Skipping the line and starting as early as possible for the St. Peter’s Basilica and Dome Climb is defiantly with it! We were so pleased with out experience. Entering the Vatican was a breeze with a tour guide. Barbara was SO knowledgeable about the church history and how it ties into Roman History in general. She knew lots of interesting stories and facts and we really appreciated how she presented it as either fact, or as a possible legend. She was an absolute pleasure to tour with. There are no words for how you will fee seeing the inside of the Basilica. It should DEFINITELY be a stop when you are in Rome.
The meeting point is in front of the souvenir shops on the Largo del Colonnato. Our guide Frederica was really nice and knowledgeable. She has a sparkling and fun personality and tailored the tour according to our wishes. Her language skills are excellent. Of course the basilica itself is marvelous and climbing the dome of the St Peter’s was spectacular. The view inside (by lift) is breathtaking. We climbed 304 steps further to enjoy a 360 degree view of the city. We are no sporty people, but found it pretty doable in 5 minutes. I would recommend going up.
The tour was absolutely great! Our guide, was super nice and walked us through the most amazing places and arts across the Saint Peter's Basillica and Vatican Museums. The information was very interesting with a lot of details and surprising facts about the buildings or pieces of art. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to get a tour of the spectacular Vatican.
Lovely guide, lots of knowledge and easy to understand through the headphones. Showed us all around the Vatican, from the square to the dome and the crypts.
Stefano, our guide was amazing! He was smart, funny and really enthusiastic! St. Peter’s was also amazing! Definitely climb the comb if you can!!
