We first toured inside the Basilica and then did the underground portion. Our group of 14 was not too big for some cramped areas but very interesting to see the old street and burial sites.

This was our second time for this tour. We were back in Rome with family who wanted to see the scavi. It was even better than 5 years ago. Excellent guide (an American graduate student) who gave us even more information than our previous visit. Easy to book on line from the US.

Response from vaticantours, Guest Relations Manager at Scavi Tour to Tomb of St. Peter's in Vatican
Responded 28 Dec 2019
Thank you for your review. No worries about summer visit as temperature in the underground area is constant through the year, so it is cooler than outside in the summer.
