Description

Visit Saint Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican’s main monument and one of the biggest churches in the world, without waiting in line!

Your tour will commence on St. Peter’s Square, from where you will be directed towards the priority entrance for fast-track access without waiting in line.

As soon as you enter the basilica, you will be captivated by its great size. Once inside, you will be able to go on an independent tour of the church at your own pace.

During the visit, you will be able to discover:

  • Michelangelo’s marble masterpiece The Pietà
  • The bronze statue of Saint Peter
  • The tomb of Pope John Paul II
  • And much more!

Take as much time as you wish to observe the basilica’s different ornaments and decorations crafted from bronze and marble.
