St. Peter’s Basilica: Selfguided Tour + Dedicated Entrance

Priceless artworks in Christianity's most iconic shrine

Cruise past the masses in the notoriously long queues and get right to the heart of one of the most revered shrines in Christianity with fast-track access to St. Peter’s Basilica. See Michelangelo's Pietà, Bernini's Baldacchino, and more priceless works. With your audio guide, learn 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 towards 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 the 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. Not forgetting to mention, seeing St. Peter's Square and the city of Rome from the front steps is a view you'll never forget.
