Overview

St Peter's Basilica is the magnificent centerpiece of Vatican City and the world’s largest church, but with tens of thousands of daily visitors, you’ll probably spend more time queuing outside than exploring inside. This private or small-group tour allows you to maximize your time with skip-the-line access, admire masterpieces like Michelangelo's Pietà, and learn more about the Vatican during a guided 1.5-hour visit.
  • 1.5-hour guided tour of St Peter's Basilica
  • Enjoy skip-the-line access to St. Peter’s Basilica
  • Marvel at Renaissance masterpieces such as Michelangelo's Pietà and Bernini’s Baldachin
  • Learn more about the Vatican and St Peter’s from an expert guide
  • Private or small-group tour limited to six people ensures a personalized experience
Meet your guide and small group of no more than six (depending on tour option selected) by the obelisk at the heart of St. Peter's Square. Take a moment to admire the grand façade of St Peter’s Basilica, as your guide points out the Papal Palace and the balcony from which the Pope delivers his Papal blessings.

Then, use your skip-the-line tickets to dodge the crowds and enjoy priority access to St Peter’s Basilica. Learn how the magnificent church dates back to the 4th-century as you follow your guide into the Chapel of the Baptistery, stop to touch Di Cambrio’s famous bronze statue of St Peter, and peek into the tombs of the Popes.

Along the way, admire the exquisite architecture; stand before the grand altar, where the Popes hold mass; and view priceless artworks, including Michelangelo's Pietà, Bernini's Baldacchino, and Canova's Monument to the Stuart Family. As you marvel over the Renaissance masterpieces, hear more about the Vatican, the Popes, and the great artists that have all contributed to the fascinating history of St Peter’s.

After an hour and a half exploring the basilica and its sacred monuments, your tour ends back in St Peter’s Square.
