Great basilica. Had to wait in line for about 20 minutes. They have a good amount of Bernini in the building as well.

The Basilica offers beautiful insights into some of the most beautiful Roman art has to offer. Take some time to appreciate the amazing architecture and the beautiful sculptures and paintings. Make sure to come early on as to avoid the crowd and appreciate the quietness of the place.

I have travel throughout Europe and seen a lot of churches, but this building is just beautiful and huge! A really lovely church to go into to see the amazing art work, there is just so much happening in here, but also to sit and just absorb it all.
