Highlights
  • Get dedicated entrance to St. Peter's Basilica and enjoy more time at the Pope's home church (it's one of the biggest churches in the world!)
  • The downloadable audio guide (available in 10 languages) will draw your attention to the most important aspects and explain the remarkable history of this building
  • The interior contains Michelangelo's Pietá, Bernini's Baldecchino, a collection of priceless mosaics, and more
Description

With fast-track access to St. Peter's Basilica, you can cruise past the masses in the notoriously long queues and get right to the heart of one of the most revered shrines in Christianity. See Michelangelo's Pietà, Bernini's Baldacchino, and more priceless works. Your audio guide will tell you all about the history of the area, the modern-day Vatican, and the architecture of this epic church as you wander through it, with your jaw hanging open.

Meet an official representative of the St. Peter's Basilica on St. Peter’s Square and head with them to a dedicated fast-track entrance line. This sweet little bonus will save you up to two hours of waiting in a line for one of Rome's most significant sites.

The Renaissance-style St. Peter's Basilica is one of the largest churches in the world. Over its 120-year-long construction many top architects (including Michelangelo and Raphael) added personal flourishes. Michelangelo, for instance, added the dome - to this day the biggest in the world!

Highlights of a visit here include Bernini's Baldacchino (the centerpiece of the church), Michelangelo's Pietà (the only artwork he ever signed), and the aforementioned dome. And of course: seeing St. Peter's Square and the city of Rome from the front steps is a view you'll never forget.

Note: We also have tickets for the tour of the Basilica + Mosaic School!

Could have waited an hour in slight drizzle but went to the meet point and were guided in very quickly so more time spent inside. Excellent!!

It was kind of difficult finding the tour point. Regardless of that everything turned right.

It was nice to skip the line but the audio guide was boring

I would say that the experience was excellent because we had not wasted time in line. And also we had an audio guide device which was of great helping to a better understanding. I should say that the general entrance to St. Peter's Basilica is for free, but line is too large.

Good directions to find members of staff and got into the chapel quickly
