The QR code issued on the email didn’t work for us even after we downloaded the Vox city app. We thought to get the physical audio guide instead. Go the the 2nd gate of the Basilica(right before the entrance into Basilica) and you can either get the Audi guide or the staff will give you another QR code to scan. The staff is really not friendly and impatient. Other than this, all else is great.

All good with the app. Just a advice - download the bigger file to access offline instead of the lite version - the internet connection in the basilica is not always the best. its has some religious calls sometimes so if you're not Cristian makes you roll the eyes ;)

The content of the audio guide was very good, but I wasted about 30 minutes because a couple of the devices did not work and had to exchange them ( I rented 5). The first option they offer you is downloading the audio guide in your phone, which I refused for the sake of saving the batteries. Plus, we did not bring our headphones. Otherwise, the St. Peter’s Basilica is a must visit. Don’t miss it !!!!
