Our guide Donnatella spoke VERY quietly with a very strong accent impossible to understand. She spoke much too in depth on the religious aspects and not enough about art and history. She walked incredibly slowly, we spent far too little time in the basilica, without any extra time to snap pictures or see anything other than the 5 locations she pointed out. Reverse order for the tour would be much better, leaving guests in the basilica to see more of it. Back to Donna, even when she finally got a microphone, she placed it below her scarf muffling her voice even more. We left the tour early, would never recommend her.
