Join our exclusive tour in the Vatican City, with priority access from the Square and a guided tour of St. Peter's Basilica. Take a fascinating look inside the most famous church in the world, and discover the hidden and famous sites of the Basilica, including "La Pieta" by Michelangelo and Bernini's Baldacchino.

After the tour of St. Peter's Basilica, you'll continue to explore the Vatican State until you reach the Vatican Mosaic Studio, a well-known school for the renovation and construction of mosaics in the Vatican properties.

You'll notice that the interior of St. Peter's Basilica does not have paintings, but all the walls are decorated with spectacular mosaics. It is for this reason that the visit to the Mosaic Studio is a worthy conclusion for the tour of St. Peter's Basilica. This exclusive tour is unique and designed for true connoisseurs of mosaic art.
