Full description
Explore one of Rome's most famous and magnificent sites! Discover why the American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson described this site as "an ornament of the earth … the sublime of the beautiful". St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican is the primary temple of Christianity, and is built in the Renaissance style, with a central dome dominating the skyline of Rome. As you enter the church, you will see that its interior is much bigger than those of any other cathedral. 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. You can decide, for example, to begin with the heart of the Basilica, beneath the high altar and the Bernini's Baldachin, where you will discover the “Confession” or “Chapel of the Confession”, in reference to the confession of faith by St. Peter, which led to his martyrdom and burial place. You may choose to end with "La Pietà", the masterpiece of Michelangelo Buonarroti, or with the St. Peter's bronze statue (so worshipped by all the pilgrims visiting over the centuries).

We didn't find the meeting point to go to St. Peter's Basilica without queuing. But since we were there at 9:00 in the morning, we were able to get through the security check so quickly. The simpler version would have been enough for us. Downloading by scanning the QR code is a bit complicated because it is difficult to scan the code on it with your own mobile phone. Otherwise it was very informative and made the visit even more special.

Great! We will only do "skip the line"!

We had to search a bit for the meeting point because the description was not so clear, but then everything went perfectly. There were hundreds of people in line and we would have had to wait forever to get into St. Peter's Basilica. With the tickets we were in without waiting. Every euro was worth it! We will only book such "skip the line" tickets. St. Peter's Basilica itself is indescribable !!!! You just MUST see it!
