If you want to visit it so quiet, it is advisable to go at the beginning of the year. Access to the Basilica is free. But you can not miss the viewpoint of the Basilica. You pay a very small sum for the maintenance of the infrastructure of the viewpoint. The view is stunning, and the entire city is. Is a wonderful experience and highly recommended.
