We saw the 1.5 hour queue running all the way down one side of St. Peter’s square, found skip the queue online and bought tickets. Went off to do some more sightseeing and returned 1 hour later and pretty much walked straight in.

This worked like a dream for us. We skipped the queues, got straight into the Basilica, logged straight into the guide and got on with the tour. The audio guide was really thorough and very interesting. I loved it.

It was fine, but the meeting place was a little confusing to find at first. We skipped the entire line, so everything went fast.
