Description

Come and experience the Queen of all of the Basilicas!

Explore one of Rome's most famous and magnificent sites without the long lines, 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 will also see that the entire interior of St. Peter's is lavishly decorated with marble, reliefs, architectural sculpture, mosaics and gilding.

You will begin your tour with one of the greatest masterpieces of all time, "La Pieta" by Michelangelo and you will have the opportunity to visit the tomb of Saint John Paul II.

At the heart of the Basilica, beneath the high altar and Bernini's Baldachin, you will discover the "Confession" or "Chapel of the Confession," in reference to the confession of faith by St. Peter, which lead to his martyrdom.

Two curving marble staircases lead to this underground chapel at the level of the Constantinian church and immediately above the burial place of Saint Peter.
