    What to Expect
    Collect your audio guide from a location in St. Peter’s Square, and walk over to St. Peter’s Basilica, passing a fountain and 13th-century Egyptian obelisk before you arrive in front of the church.

    Enjoy fast-track entry to the basilica with your skip-the-line, allowing you to go straight inside the spectacular structure, said to be built upon the site where St. Peter the Apostle was crucified. Throughout the centuries, the humble church grew into the ornate icon it is today—the holiest of Catholic sites. With your audio guide on, explore at your leisure to discover Renaissance art like Michelangelo’s 'La Pietà' sculpture, as well as the Cupola—St. Peter’s famous dome.

    Admire mosaic works, see a statue of St. Peter, visit the tomb of Pope John Paul II, and stare in wonder at Bernini’s 'Baldacchino,' the elaborate canopy alter that sits above St. Peter’s tomb.

    When you have finished exploring, simply return your audio guide back to the start point.

    I have never seen so many people on a line. Took a while to find the blue shirts but once we did we were in. Worth the money. Would recommend providing guests with the audio guide in advance.

    Once you enter through security, there is a desk to the right of the church where you buy your tickets to the dome. They are not included in the price. You have to pay cash for the tickets. We did this first and then came... More
