This is a simple entrance ticket— no guide but you’re able to skip the line which is nice. The monuments and burial sites of key Italian cultural figures were really cool to see. I most enjoyed learning more about the restoration efforts after the flood of 1966 that ruined several works inside the Basilica. There were several markers that gave more context on the art, so I don’t think you need to have a tour unless you really want to get into the details. I did Google a few of the memorials inside to make sure I knew what I was looking at. One note— they weren’t really enforcing the dress code. We saw men and women with shorts on inside, which is a bit annoying when you actually wear long pants in the heat and then see others aren't doing it.

A very satisfying experience. Splendid paintings and sculpture. Book online to save queueing. We went at 11am and it was nicely quiet.

Impressive, it is indescribable to be in front of the tomb of Michelangelo or Galileo Galileo among others
