everything as described, it helps to deal with it beforehand WHERE the tickets have to be picked up and WHICH entrance is used - but everything is specified exactly. The app could have been a bit more detailed and is installed on site, but we were offered direct help from both the pick-up point and official tourist guides.

Great tour, impressive cathedral. Audio guide very basic and not of good quality. Text was often wrong grammatically and syntax. If I had taken an audio guide on site, it would have cost me 5 euros. So 20, but with a skip the line ticket. That worked wonderfully. great experience. Audio guide upgradeable.

Well first the obvious ! The Basilica is beyond words ! There could be more details in the description of what is included and what is not . You gain entry into the front of the Basilica , no entry to the museum , and no entry to the main Basilica without additional payment of 7 euro for the museum and 5 for the main Basilica .
