  • 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 downloadable audio guide (available in 10 languages) will draw your attention to the most important aspects and explain the remarkable history of this building
  • The interior contains Michelangelo's Pietá, Bernini's Baldecchino, a collection of priceless mosaics, and more


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) and to the Basilica + Mosaic School.

The visiting of the St. Peter's Basilica itself is free, but it was definitely worth paying a few bucks to skip the line here. It was very long! Easy instructions on where to show up before entering and the information provided by the crew was easy to understand. Got to skip the entire line and go straight to the security control checkpoint. The password we were provided for connecting to the WiFi for our audio guide was wrong, so we were not able to have any audio guiding. This was not a big problem for us however, since we mainly just wanted to skip the big line. I am sure you'll be able to contact any of the crew in the "Audio Guide" booths inside the venue for assistance if needed.
