Although it's free to go inside St. Peter's Basilica, it's so worth it to pay more and get direct access outside of the regular queue! On the day I visited (mid July) the queue was horrendous and I was so glad I booked my ticket in advance. Saved me at least 2 hours of waiting in the sun. The whole check in procedure went very smooth, after the group gathered, we were taken through the priority gate directly to the Basilica. Then we were given our audio guide device (need to leave an ID for deposit) and a member of staff took us to the entry to the Dome. From there you are on your own and can explore at your own pace, which suited me very well. The view from the Dome is spectacular, it's really worth it to pay a bit more and experience it! From the Dome we could take an elevator directly to the Basilica and there again walk around in our own pace, listening to the audio guide. After the Basilica, I went to visit the Vatican Museums, also with a reserved ticket booked on Veltra - again, saved me a lot of waiting (I felt sorry for those people standing in a veeeery long line...).

Although it's free to go inside St. Peter's Basilica, it's so worth it to pay more and get direct access outside of... the regular queue! On the day I visited (mid July) the queue was horrendous and I was so glad I booked my ticket in advance. Saved me at least 2 hours of waiting in the sun. The whole check in procedure went very smooth, after the group gathered, we were taken through the priority gate directly to the Basilica. Then we were given our audio guide device (need to leave an ID for deposit) and a member of staff took us to the entry to the Dome. From there you are on your own and can explore at your own pace, which suited me very well. The view from the Dome is spectacular, it's really worth it to pay a bit more and experience it! From the Dome we could take an elevator directly to the Basilica and there again walk around in our own pace, listening to the audio guide. After the Basilica, I went to visit the Vatican Museums, also with a reserved ticket booked on Veltra - again, saved me a lot of waiting (I felt sorry for those people standing in a veeeery long line...). more
