The tour of the Golden Basilica takes you into this extraordinary construction – unparalleled in style and beauty in the rest of Italy. Contemplate the breath-taking golden mosaics and the marble inlaid floors. Then, enjoy a leisurely break as your guide tells you all about the biblical tales represented in the Basilica’s walls.
