Unfortunately it was not specified that the Green Pass was required for the visit of the churches and therefore not all my family members, despite the paid ticket, were able to participate in this part of the tour. Ditto for the visit to the Duomo: due to marriage we could not visit it with the guide and subsequently, despite the pass left by the guide, we could not recover the paid visit due to our limited time. In other cities they took care before the availability of the Basilica and above all they did not ask for a green pass, as access to the churches does not include it .... Obviously, if there is an entrance ticket then it becomes a museum visit and clicks the 'obligation.
