Equipped with your Livitaly map with highlights to see throughout the church, you will have your own free time to explore the beautiful collections of Baroque and Renaissance which adorn the basilica.
As you look up you can enjoy another of Michelangelo's works - the dome that marks the signature skyline of The eternal city. You will also have the chance to see the impressive Baldachin High Altar of Gian Lorenzo Bernini made entirely out of bronze.

ABOUT OUR 6 PEOPLE SMALL GROUP POLICY
When you book a small group tour, you are guaranteed one tour guide per group of 6 people. Please bear in mind though that in order to accommodate traveling families and friends, we do, on rare occasions, make the exception of adding an additional one to two guests in order to not split groups who are traveling together. On that same note, you may find yourself on tour with less than six people. As we accept bookings in multiples of six, math doesn't always work in our favor to help accommodate individual travelers and their families when on the same tour, so we hope you understand and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
