What to expect

Take part in an exclusive tour, ideal for art lovers and collectors! Gain special entrance into the Vatican City, tour the Mosaic Studio, meet its experts and learn all about the history and production of the world’s preeminent mosaic workshop.

The Studio del Mosaico della Reverenda Fabbrica di S. Pietro (Official Mosaic Studio of St. Peter’s) is located inside the walls of the Vatican City and it isn't open to the general public. It was founded in the mid-1500s for the creation of the precious mosaics adorning the interior of St. Peter’s Basilica. Centuries later, the Studio’s experts still oversee the care and restoration of these mosaics. The Studio continues to create and issue the world’s finest mosaics, renowned for their exquisite beauty and the quality of their craftsmanship, both for the Pope (who gives them as gifts during official visits) and for private customers and collectors from around the world. During the tour, you will also have the chance to purchase one of these precious, one-of-a-kind masterpieces to commemorate your trip.
