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!

Excellent way to save time. We were in the Basilica in 20 minutes! Whilst the general cue was at least a 3 hour wait!

Amazing experience, skipped the huge line and got in within 2 minutes. The staff was helpful, audio guide worked well. Very happy I pre- booked the tickets

It was great experience for having ticket thru this web site. There was huge line and we were very comfortable after getting the tickets online. It was easy to approach the staff members and they were very helpful too.

Wonderful!!

This was fantastic! The queue was wound all the way around the Basilica's square and people were waiting all morning just to get their tickets. We went to the meeting point and were directed straight to our own dedicated entrance queue (which only had 5 people in it) and went straight on in - well worth the money. It ensures you spend your time seeing the history of Rome rather than standing in a queue all day!
