Our tour guide (Chiara) was the best in showing us around the Basilica. She had a good explanation and was super helpful. The Basilica in itself is a beauty to visit. I did however disliked the fact we could not visit the papal tombs. I did read the fine print, which stated that the papal tombs can be closed off by the Vatican, where the guide would show us more of the Basilica. Nevertheless I did not like the fact it was closed on short notice, making us unable to visit.
Perfect timing for the visit (the tour starts at 8am) when everything is still quiet and calm, as it gets much busier later in the day. This gives you unique chance to fully enjoy the beauty of the Basilica with its surrounding.
We enjoyed our guide so much. Chiara was a typical italian local. She presented the tour with such passion and zest! She was able to take us back in time to learn about the history of the Vatican. We highly recommend her.
It was great experience, beautiful basilica, and stunning views. Our guide Chiara was very funny, and the information she gave us was very informative and detailed, she was amazing.
Great tour and knowledgeable tour guide (ILLI) Thank you! The tour lasted about three hours and started on time. We were lucky as the Vatican and Sistine Chapel were very quite.
