What to expect

See Rome and its beauties from the highest heights of Michelangelo's magnificent dome during this amazing art and guided tour.

Meet your expert Vatican tour guide on the threshold of St. Peter's Square and prepare to climb up to history. There are 551 steps in total, but you will take the elevator, so to cut the step count by a sizable 171, leaving 380. At the summit, your guide will point out all the most interesting historical landmarks in Rome and Vatican City.

The way down will be much easier. Take a break before entering St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatacombs, the catacombs of the Vatican. St. Peter’s Basilica is where Bernini's brilliance and Michelangelo's genius rise above Holy Papal tombs and the perceived necropolis of St. Peter himself.
