Very interesting tour. We had a slight problem with finding the meeting point because of the crowd lining up to visit the basilica. Very knowledgeable guide. Tour covered places that other tours do not include in their exploration of the basilica. Well spent hour.
Our guide (forgive me for forgetting her name!) was fantastic. Her enthusiasm for the subjects was infectious and made us all want to know and learn more. She was very knowledgeable and offered us a wodnerfu tour. On top of al that, she was helpful with my father who has minor mobility isses.
We learned so much about the Cathedral, the Baptistery and Zen Chapel. We weren't allowed to take pictures inside and it's absolutely breathtaking. Our guide, Gulia, was very knowledgable told interesting stories.
Our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. It was good to be able to see parts of St Mark's that are not normally open to the public.
Highly recommend the extra access this tour offered. Young lady that gave tour was excellent!
We stood outside St. Peters door of the Basilica as stated in the directions and my husband spoke to the information guy who said we were too early. I assumed the tour would start outside the door and wed go in as a group. No. The group was already gathered inside the door of the Basilica! It's a good thing my husband asked the information guy again later. We were given VOX devices and one earphone so we could clearly hear our young, female guide. The mosaics in the Basilica are gorgeous. We saw the Baptistry, Zen Chapel and Treasury and the Golden Pall. No photos are allowed but people did it anyway. The golden mosaics are quite impressive. In the treasury are artifacts stolen from Constantinople and one is a jewel inlaid golden box said to contain a piece of the Cross. Theyve never opened the box but did a CT scan and whats left is dust but the guide only admitted that after a lot of questioning by a man in our group. The mosaics on the floor were also beautiful with intricate patterns and shapes of animals. This was an excellent tour where we didn't have to wait in the very long line and were given excellent explanations of what we saw.
Skip the line is definitely worth it! An amazing place with fabulous guide! We took the 4 o clock tour so had to rush off to retrieve our bags before the bag storage closed at 5. Pity that photos can and #39;t be taken!
