Tickets for St. Peter's Basilica: Skip The Line + Audio Guide

Priceless artworks in Christianity's most iconic shrine

Loading booking widget
Best time to visit
From 7:00 to 10:00
Opening hours
Apr - Sep 07:00 - 19:00, Oct - Mar 07:00 - 18:00
  • 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.

Very difficult to find the meeting point. The guys were in blue polo shirts not wearing blue ties as mentioned in the confirmation. We had to stand in a line for about 20-30 mins but skipping the huge line made it totally worthwhile! Just make the meeting point more obvious.

First, There are people all around the outside of the Vatican to assist with where to go and once inside the piazza, very easy to find. The guides are all helpful and friendly. Also, by going through tiqets, you go right thru security and do not have to wait on a long line

We booked the same day and everything came out great. Email vouchers, check in, skip the line...
We just asked some gentlemen in blue vests where to go in and they personally took us all the way to the check in box. Super fast and convenient. There was at least a 1-2hr waiting line so we were extremely satisfied with the quickness.
Highly recommended.

This experience was perfect. A team of folks met us, we got right in, and they even provided us a link for an audio tour! Surpassed my expectations. I thought this as only a ticket purchase but it helped that they had folks on site to assist.

This ticket was great for skipping the massive queue. Very reasonable priced however we could not get the audio guide to work and could not find any Tiqets staff to help with this.
