Papal Tombs Tour Rip-Off

, Nov 2019
On the day of our papal tomb tour there was an event in the Basilica that had been on their calendar for about a year. The tour operator should not have been booking that tour on that day since the info was available. We were not able to tour the necropolis, no one offered any refund, no offer of another day to try again. They just took our money and ran. We were not pleased.

St Peter’s Basilica Michelangelo’s Dome was one of two wonderful tours we took while in Rome. Thomas, the tour guide, was both charming and knowledgeable! There were only four in our tour group. We all climbed to the top of the dome!!!! Take this tour!

Our tour leader, Thomas, was very knowledgeable, personable and friendly. He was able to help us understand the role of the church in ancient Rome and how St. Peter's Basilica evolved over time to become physical center of the Catholic faith. He described the lives of the artisans and leaders of the church and how these intertwined to cause the formation of some of the greatest works of art in the world. The ability to explore Michelangelo's Dome and the Papal Tombs made this experience complete and very fulfilling.

The Basilica will take your breath away, it is beautiful and mesmerizing! Thomas our guide was great, he is very knowledgeable and we could freely ask questions and ask his opinion. This is a must do in Rome. Do note that not all attractions are available all the time.
