Church free entry; Treasury 400 forints (adult), 300 forints (concessions), Panorama Tower 500/400 forints, guided tours in English 2,000 forints.
There have been occasional reports of conmen approaching tourists outside the Basilica and selling them entrance tickets. Be aware that the Basilica itself is free to enter (although you’ll need to pay to enter the Treasury and to access the outer gallery).
There are concerts in the Basilica (and in the square outside during summer).
The viewing gallery running around the outside of the church’s dome offers some of the city’s best views. If you can’t brave the full 300 steps, you can board a lift that carries you most of the way.
