About St Peters Basilica, Rome

The iconic St. Peter’s Basilica is another jewel on the Vatican crown. This historic and immensely important church should not be skipped by any means. The current structure which stands on the site took well over one hundred years to complete within the time frame of 1506 and 1626. This monument today stands as a testament to the dexterity of Christianity in Rome and is considered to be one of the most important and ‘holiest’ churches in Vatican and indeed in the world. When you plan a trip to Rome to visit this cathedral, one should keep in mind that a dress code is enforced in and around these areas which specifies that shorts, miniskirts, etc are not allowed.

  • Although I'm not religious, this place is a historical marvel. The architecture is astounding, and everything inside and outside is beautiful. You can walk to the very top of the basilica, and the view is great. Although some advise against it, I recommend taking a tour with a guide - they appear to be scams, but they're not. We paid 10 euros more for entry, but we got to skip both queues (the queue to the basilica is different to the queue for the museum), and the tour guide was actually great; we had an American guide, and he was lovely and addressed everyone. If there is more than ten of you in the group (which there will be), they give you an earpiece to better hear the guide. If you want, you can even break off from them! You're not required to stick with them the whole time, but I would as they actually explain things and otherwise, you won't have a clue what anything is inside.

  • Historic place, the waiting lines move very fast since its all about security. Consider doing the Roof top tour in the St Peter's ( Cupola, stay to the right after entering the basilica). Kids under 8 are free and you have a great view over all of Rome and the Vatican gardens. The church itself is a collection o the who is who of the Catholic faith, with the popes presenting their power and wealth. The tombs in the basement are rather interesting.

  • The most awe-inspiring church in Italy. Dress appropriately and go early in the morning. It gets very crowded starting at around 9am and lasting all day. You don't want to stand in line half the day. For €6 you can climb to the top of the cupola for amazing views of Rome. Don't miss it!

  • Come between 8 and 9am for zero waiting time. Do the Cupola tour if you can bear with very many increasingly narrow stairs. If you're claustrophobic, don't. The view over Rome is probably the best you'll find. This is the most beautiful and impressive building I've ever seen in my life. It is incredible to think that it was built by humans in the "dark" age of medieval times.

  • A must see if you're in Rome! We opted not to do any tours or buy tickets online, as I'm always fearful of getting scammed or falling into a tourist trap. There are "guides" everywhere in the plaza trying to convince you to go on their tours to skip the lines. It's up to you, by it's not necessary. We arrived around 1pm and waited in line for about 30 minutes. It actually went by really quick. Dress appropriately, as the ladies in front of me waited in line just as long as I did only to be told they couldn't enter because they had short skirts and tank tops on. I wore a long maxi dress, but kept a shawl in my bag for my shoulders.
