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.

Passing the line was very fast but the guide could have told little bit more about how things work in basilica. The audio guide was way too full of pathos, all the visitors are not religious.

Once we got to the right place at St. Peter's, after struggling for 35 mins, it was fine. As soon as you sold us the tix online, you should have given us instructions specifically for the Basilica as to where to go and what to do. The place was huge and full of numerous tour groups, many of which tried to hi-jack business away from Tiquets by giving us misleading and wrong info. One tour vendor actually directed us to go to the longest public que for people without pre-paid tix.

Super fast and easy entry around and past long lines of tired and frustrated people, escorted right up to and sent through security. Included complete audioguide provided on our phones with wifi throughout St. Peter's.
Totally worth the minimal extra cost to save time when I have so little and so much to see.
