Description

See St. Peter's Basilica and get up to the dome in the best way possible. This ticket (exclusive to Tiqets) lets you skip the painfully long lines - both in front of the basilica and for the elevator partway up to the dome. Plus, your audio guide fills you in on the noteworthy aspects and history. See priceless art and architecture, breathtaking panoramas, and feel like a king (or Pope), in the finest church in Christendom.

St. Peter's Basilica is one of the most revered shrines in Christianity. And this ticket is the best way to see it. Get skip the line access, plus an escort to guide you to pick up your audio guides, and get into the dome elevator.

St. Peter's Basilica is one of the most remarkable buildings in the world - did you know it took 120 years to build and 14 different people - including Michelangelo, Raphael, and Bernini - were lead architect? You'll learn all about the history, symbolism, and art from your audio guides as you bask in the majesty of this enormous church. Plus you'll get access to the magnificent dome.

This visit, exclusive to Tiqets, will let you have the best experience possible inside (and up on top of) St. Peter's Basilica.

This was recommended to us by a friend. Given the long lines during the time of our visit, we are glad we purchased the VIP access to St.Peters Basilica and the Dome. For those wanting to skip the lines and maximise their tour in the jam-packed St. Peter's, this is recommended.

Esperienza meravigliosa: siamo entrati senza fare neppure un minuto di coda, staff organizzatissimo, visita meritevole di lode sia per la qualità delle audio-guide che per la bellezza della basilica di San Pietro e della sua Cupola.
Consigliatissimo!!!!!
