Description

Using an official audio-guide of the Basilica, you can start your visit at any point of the church, without having to follow the order dictated by the presence of a guide. Explore one of Rome's most famous and magnificent sites without the long lines and at your own pace, and discover why the American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson described this site as "an ornament of the earth...the sublime of the beautiful."

St. Peter is the primary temple of Christianity and is built in the Renaissance style with a central dome that dominates the skyline of Rome. As you enter the church, you will see that its interior is much bigger than those of any other cathedral.

You may begin with the heart of the Basilica, beneath the high altar and Bernini's Baldachin, where you'll discover the "Confession" or "Chapel of the Confession," in reference to the confession of faith by St. Peter which lead to his martyrdom and burial place, and you can end with "La Pieta," the masterpiece of Michelangelo Buonarroti or with the St. Peter's bronze statue, so venerated by all the visiting pilgrims.

So, what are you waiting for? Come and enjoy the Queen of all of the Basilicas!

We paid 20euros to get 'skip the line' and entry. This was worth every penny as the que was absolutely ridiculous and was a estimated waiting time of 2-3 hours. We literally waited for about 5 minutes and was straight in it was a brilliant service. St Peters Basilicia is a MUST SEE, It is the most beautiful building i have ever seen in my life.

Yes you can jump the queue but in order to meet your contact you need to know that there are two post offices! We waited until 20 ...minutes past the agreed time before a kind Vatican rep showed us the other post office. Please be clearer with your instructions. more
