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.

N'hésitez plus entre toutes les offres ! On est arrivé au rdv à droite de la basilique en face la poste du Vatican juste derrière la longue queue. Trop facile à trouver . La personne au gilet bleu attendait, elle nous a fait entrer en coupant la file de sécurité et ensuite l'autre file pour acheter le ticket pour la coupole presque aussi longue. On a été équipé des audio guides et puis on est rentré librement dans la cathédrale. Magnifique. Je conseille la coupole sinon visite inachevée par la splendide vue.

Pas d'attente. Billet coupe-file bien pratique.
L'audio-guide est un vrai plus.
L'ascenseur est un avantage. Attention, il faut quand même monter quelques marches dans un escalier parfois étroit.

Si dispones de tiempo limitado para visitar Roma es imprescindible contratar servicios de este tipo ya que por un dinero que no es excesivo ahorra mucho tiempo para dedicarlo a otras actividades. El Vaticano siempre tiene mucha cola de visitantes, con esta experiencia entras casi directamente sin esperar apenas. Muy recomendable.

Très très satisfaite. On n'a fait aucune queue. Le point de rencontre est facile à trouver et détaillé sur votre billet. Quelqu'un est là pour vous accueillir et vous accompagne jusqu'aux audioguides et à l'ascenseur de la coupole. Le personnel est sympathique. Vous ne vous occupez de rien, tout roule comme une mécanique bien huilée.
En 5 mn, nous étions à l'intérieur.

Bella esperienza, il biglietto é davvero SALTA LA CODA: abbiamo saltato una bella coda lunghissima e passato in fretta i controlli di sicurezza. L'unica nota stonata é che per noi che non eravamo mai stati in Vaticano, ci abbiamo messo un po' per trovare il punto di ritrovo con l'operatore, ma a parte questo è stata una splendida esperienza Basilica + Cupola!
