Highlights

  • Skip the notoriously long lines to St. Peter's Dome and Basilica and admire Rome and the wonders of the basilica from above
  • Take the elevator and avoid the 171 steps to the base of the dome
  • Spend some time at one of the holiest Catholic shrines, and what has also been called "the greatest of all churches of Christendom"

Description

Skip the notoriously long lines for St. Peter's Basilica and add a visit to the famous dome, the 'Cuppolone'. Your audio guide will lead the way as you take in the history of this remarkable building - a place that's just as fascinating with or without the Pope inside.

Meet your Tiqets rep in St. Peter’s Square and walk with them into the basilica via a dedicated fast track entrance. Try not to look smug, as this will save you up to two hours of waiting time! You'll be given your official audio guide and then it's over to you to explore "the greatest of all churches of Christendom".

Catholic tradition dictates that St. Peter, one of Christ's Apostles, is buried at the Basilica site, and so is the first Pope. Once you've checked out the basilica, take an elevator to the base of the dome, skipping 171 steps in the process. From here, and from upstairs too, you'll get amazing views of St. Peter's spectacular interior, and the city outside.

From the Vatican Gardens, the roof of the Sistine Chapel and the famous chimney used to signal a Pope's election, you just can't beat that jaw-dropping panorama!

Awesome trip to St.Peter's Basilica&dome with skip the line ticket. The line could really take up to hours!! I felt so lucky that I don't have to stand under the sun for such a long period! Worth the money!

Just awesome! Didn't know about all the steps on top of the elevator ride! Quite a few don't want to spoil it for others just enjoy good workout and unbelievable view!

Good:
The meeting point at the venue was easy to find, and we only waited a very short time to go through the security check point. The staff were all easily identifiable.
Bad:
We were escorted through to the lift which took us to the base of the dome, but were not advised what to do after this point, the arrangement for climbing to the top of the dome, or any other information about the museum. It would have been helpful to provide us with information about how to return from the dome, how to climb the dome if we required etc, and maybe provide a map of the inside of the basilica.
Overall, a worthwhile purchase...skipping the entry queue was reason enough to spend the money.

This was really worth the money. We were met by the representative and escorted to the front of the security line and straight to through to the lift up to the first level of the dome. The views were amazing from the top of the dome and we had the bonus of then exiting via the church itself without haven't to join the huge queues.
