What to expect

Live the experience of admiring Saint Peter's Basilica with this reserved entrance guided visit! Take this chance to discover the secrets of one of the greatest wonders of the Renaissance and admire Michelangelo's masterpiece, the ‘Pieta’ and some of Bernini’s world famous sculptures.

Known as the Queen of all the Basilicas, the Basilica of St. Peter is a church in the Renaissance style with a central dome that dominates the skyline of Rome. As you enter the church, you will see that its interior is of vast dimensions by comparison with other churches.

At the heart of the basilica, beneath the high altar, you will discover the Confessio or Chapel of the Confession, in reference to the confession of faith by St. Peter, which lead to his martyrdom. You’ll take the two curving marble staircases that lead to this underground chapel at the level of the Constantinian church and immediately above the burial place of Saint Peter.

You will see St. Peter's is lavishly decorated halls with marble, reliefs, architectural sculptures, and beautiful gilding.
