Full description
The Lateran complex consists of several high interest sites: the Basilica, the Cloister and the Treasure Museum, the Baptistery and the Holy Stairs, which contain the casket of the Chapel of the Sancta Sanctorum. This special ticket allows you to easily access the complex and visit all the points of interest in around 2 hours with a multilingual audio-guide system. You will begin your visit by visiting the basilica with the cloister and the Treasure Museum, before then proceeding outside the church to the baptistery which is located in the square behind. During the second half of your tour, you will visit the building of the Holy Stairs, which is located on the right of the basilica, and admire the Chapel of the Sancta Sanctorum. If you only have one hour, you can visit the basilica and its cloister first, followed by the Holy Stairs and Sancta Sanctorum.

    Worth seeing! There was very little going on. Not like any other attraction in the city. The audio guide is interesting. Unfortunately no screen (it's mentioned again and again in the explanations and things that can be seen in the pictures are explained. Too bad!) and the devices don't work properly.

    Totally recommended for the price. The system with the audio guide works like "TipToi". Note for obtaining the audio equipment and carrying out the tour: under the canopy of the church on the right is the office for exchanging the booking for tickets. Then enter the church and turn left in front of an exit to get the audio devices by depositing an ID card. After the church, hand in the devices and cross the street with the tickets and enter the sacred steps. Here you get audio devices again. You also have full access to the small chapel on the first floor. After the visit, cross the street again and behind the basilica you have a guided tour through the old baroque church with the equipment. You can then return the devices with the plans to the holy steps. We spent almost 3 hours with the devices. For this amount it paid off in full.

    The price is the same as if you arrive on site, so this alone is convenient (you already have the ticket!). The site is divided into several buildings: some attendants are efficient, others definitely not! Organize it well because if you want to do everything calmly, it takes between 2 and 3 hours
