Breathtaking enormous church with incredible history

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable but too much information overload was experienced by our group of 6 people. There was non stop talking the whole 3 hours of the tour. I would have enjoyed some more basic information and history. We waited for an hour outside before going inside. The guide was very knowledgeable but just too much information for the 1st time tourist.

Walking round the Basilica was an amazing experience and our guide was just brilliant.

An absolute must do if you go to Rome but do be aware of the fact that everyone else wants to be there aswell and so the crowds are a bit grim
