    Dear Maggie, thank you for the positive review from all of our staff. We are sorry that you did not enter inside some the chapels, but it is not our fault: some places are accessible only for people who want to pray or attend the Holy Masses. We thank you for the communication about the typo, we have informed those responsible for correcting the error

    Traveling with teenagers...did this kind of last minute. Traffic was brutal getting there. The staff made it easy-the tour is a download on your phone so it's way easier if you bring your own headphones.
