We enjoyed the visit to St. Peter's Basilica with Chiara very much. We received interesting and competent explanations. The kids were also very happy and satisfied.


I highly recommend this tour, we bought it with the ST. Peter's Basilica self guide and it was amazing, but give yourself time to walk around because there is much to see.


Very interesting! The commentary provided by the audio guide is both engaging and informative
