This is the only tour with a guided visit to the top of St Peter's cupola! You'll be one of an exclusive group to view all of Rome from the dome of the basilica.
Worth the visit. If offers something to everyone, whether you are religious or simply like to learn about the history of the Basilica and the Popes. There is a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes. Also, since this is a religious site, please be respectful of the site and those who are worshiping. Observe decorum, dress comfortably, but conservatively dress code is strictly enforced.
Fantastic tour, highly recommend well worth it.
Enjoyed the views from the top of the dome.
Great tour. Best part is the Views from the top! Getting to the top is also Fun!
This was amazing. . Our guide Valeria was really enthusiastic, knowledgeable and had a great way with words, bringing the history lesson to life. Not to be missed
Highly recommend the Basilica tour and trip to the to of the Dome. Our guide, Amil, was very informative and kept the tour itself fun. Skipping the line was worth it to us ... Can't imagine waiting in the lines for hours.
Excellent tour and excellent tour guide, well worth it!
Mostly well-organised - some confusion about which group we were in initially. After that all excellent and well worth the money to skip the line. I have been before and I learnt new things about this amazing building although didn't find the tour as comprehensive as my previous one. The views over Rome are wonderful!
Fantastic tour of the Basilica and the Dome.
This trip is in two parts:
1. The Basilica - this was a fantastic tour, our guide was highly knowledgeable and his English was excellent. All the highlights of the Basilica were pointed out an any questions answered.
2. The Dome- before starting I have to point out that this is not for the feint hearted and requires a certain level of fitness. The tour begins with a short trip in a lift which takes out 200 steps. The next leg of the journey upwards consists of 300 steps upwards with not many resting places. Now for the good stuff, shortly after starting the second part of the trip you access the inside of the Dome where all the highlights of the interior are pointed out, the visitors below are the size of ants. Then its onwards and upwards to the top. The views are amazing, well worth the journey to the top I would not have missed this.
Overall the Tour was fantastic, the two guides were really great and there English was perfect.
Our Group was only about 11 people so you really felt you were getting one to one attention at all times. Access to the Basilica at the start was effortless, particularly when you saw the queue's of people waiting outside.
All in all 5 out of 5 and I would have no hesitation of booking a tour with Viator again.
It was and excellent experience. Our tour guide was a professional in all terms. We learned a lot and enjoyed our visit to the Basilica.
