Know More about this tour

Explore one of Rome's most famous and magnificent sites without the long lines and using your own device! Discover why the American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson described this site as "an ornament of the earth … the sublime of the beautiful"



St. Peter is the primary temple of Christianity and is built 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 much bigger than those of any other cathedral.

You will be provided with an access code that will allow you to free download (through the Basilica WiFi network) the audio guided tour of the Basilica: you can start you visit at any point of the church, without having to necessarily follow the order dictated by the presence of a guide.

You can decide – for example – to begin with the heart of the Basilica, beneath the high altar and the Bernini's Baldachin, where you will discover the “Confession” or “Chapel of the Confession”, in reference to the confession of faith by St. Peter, which lead to his martyrdom and burial place.

And end with "La Pietà" the masterpiece of Michelangelo Buonarroti or with the St. Peter's bronze statue (so venerated by all the pilgrims visiting even to be consumed by all the hands that have touched it over the centuries!)

So, what are you waiting for? Come and enjoy the Queen of all of the Basilicas!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • A must see for anyone visiting Rome and the Viator tour is well organised worth paying to skip the line

  • What a good idea this was to book in advance. It was a very hot day when we visited and we just walked passed all the people queuing in the sun and went straight inside. Well worth doing.

  • Did not have to wait in a very long line but it took us over 25 minutes to find the way to the no wait access, signage was very poor .
    We had to ask quite a few people in order to find the way.

  • No information about where to go so we wandered around trying to find someone to help us. Then we were taken as far as the security and left to explain why we appeared, to everyone else waiting to be scanned, why we appeared to be jumping the queue. The audio guide was good, very thorough. I thought this included entrance to the cupola, but it didn't - had to pay extra for that.

  • It is particularly useful especially in days with many tourists.

  • A must see! We saw very long lines as we left, which would have taken up to 2 hours to reach the entrance, so absolutely worth the extra charge to skip the lines!

  • Perfect for what my wife and I wanted to do. We easily picked up our pass, skipped the 2 hour line, and toured the Basilica. We didn't utilize the audio guide so I cannot speak to the quality but great value overall

  • Very good tour, mostly because you can be in a much smaller line before going though security than if you dont pay any tour. The downside is that the recordings are too long and despite the fact they are really interesting, sometimes you just don't have the time or energy. It would be great, as someone suggested, having the a full version and a shorter more summarized version. in that way you could decide.

  • If you are looking to skip the line to get into the Basilica, walk-around on your own schedule within the Basilica without having to wait for groups of people to show up, then I highly recommend this tour. The audio tour is decent enough to hit the main points of the history of the Basilica.
