St. Peter's Basilica
Entry to St. Peter's Basilica is NOT skip the line.
Since we would visit a place of worship, wearing shirts with sleeves and avoiding shorts, vest tops and open toe sandals would be best.
The entry to Basilica is free. You charged 8€ just for the Audio devise. This was not mentioned in the details. That was not worth it. Rest was all great....sandeep gupta, India, 01/Dec/2017
