AURA was an expectable that I was looking forward to go. The show is amazing! The only dissapointing thing is the duration. The show is only 15 to 20 minutes. As soon as you enter to the Basilique, you can walk around to appreciate the...More

This seems to be the street that everything is on and everything is connected too. High priced shops though. Still a lovely walk and interesting to see the Christmas lights still around. Makes for a pretty scene. Worth a walk down it.

The actual light show is 15 minutes. It is advertised as 45, but it is not that long. The show is wonderful and powerful. Go early and give yourself a chance to walk the interior of the church.

You need to line up 20-30 minutes in advance and once you get in you have time to wander around and explore the main nave of the basilica. The art is illuminated and some have music or sounds which is interesting. Then you take your...More

This was beautiful. The inside of the cathedral is gorgeous without the light show, but add the show and it's breathtaking. Buy your tickets in advance and get there early. People start lining up a half hour or more before the show and the show...More

It's well worth the price of a ticket. Not long in duration, but an ideal way to highlight the basilica.

We went to the show August 16, 2018. When we arrived people were already lining up 45 minutes ahead of time. They probably started letting us in about 20 minutes ahead of time. I thought I read somewhere that you should be... More
