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

Priceless artworks in Christianity's most iconic shrine

Loading booking widget
Overview
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 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
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) and to the Basilica + Mosaic School.

The skip the line part was excellent and easy to find where we had to meet up. The staff checking us in were helpful and friendly too.
Only reason it got a 4 star and not a 5 is both my wife and myself did not like the audio guide. Both of us ended up switching it off as it was very dry in the reading and would have preferred a lot more focus (or option) on the architecture and artwork of the building. It kind of came across a little preachy. But just our opinion.
