Outstanding tour with very knowledgable guide.

Had been to St. Peter's before but not to the necropolis. This is a must-see tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. One tip for the tour. It would have been useful to walk the route of the necropolis tour on the present Basilica level, especially since a portion of the Gaius Trophy is visible in the niche in the Confessio. It would also have been useful to point out the location of the Clementine Chapel from the upper level. These sites got explained while we were touring the necropolis and crypt levels, but it would help first time visitors to point them out from the upper level before going below. Our group toured the basilica first so a spatial orientation to what we would be seeing just a few feet below would have been an easy fit.

Great very informative tour with knowledgeable tour guide

The tour was very informative and well laid out. It brought out details that you would have to take hours to dig out on your own. The guide was very knowledgeable and could answer all the questions posed to her.

An absolute must if visiting St Peter's Basilica!

This is an amazing tour! I highly recommend it. It's amazing to think you are standing on a path that has been there for almost 2,000 years! An archaeologists dream!
