Highlights

  • Skip the notoriously long lines 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 interior contains Michelangelo's Pietá, Bernini's Baldecchino, a collection of priceless mosaics, and more

Description

With skip the line 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 Pietá, 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 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.

We also have tickets for access to the Dome (with audio guide), the Basilica + Mosaic School, or the Basilica + Treasury Museum.

Skip the line was worth it..but the program on your phone was confusing because you have to press a number to see what your next audio is about but it doesn't help you know where to go..even my review is confusing!

The concept is great. Sometimes, however, the wifi dropped off and one had to go through tediuos reconnecting. When it worked was great and explanation were excellent. Despite the connectivity problems will do it again.
