Overview
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 'Cupolone'. 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!

Fast efficient entry, very helpfull staff. If you can make the climb to the top (300+ steps) the views are magnificent.

Easy to find the staff on the outside and convenient to enter the Dome, with help from staff. The Audioguide was working well, but a clear instruction on the route to follow inside the Dome would have been helpful and understand.

Enjoyed having a tour of the dome and not having to queue was a bonus. Walking up to the cupola was really worthwhile. Disappointed that the audio guide only had a brief description of the dome and nothing about the Basilica. No leaflets or other information about the Basilica that I could find
