St. Peter's Basilica audioguide and Dome Entry Ticket

Explore the beauty of St. Peter’s Basilica on an audio-guided tour that will allow you to enjoy one of the best views of the city.
Admire the gilded ceilings, marble works and Michelangelo’s Pietà on a journey into the past.

Located in the Vatican City, the Basilica of St. Peter stands on one of the 7 hills: a remarkable symbol both of long-standing religious importance and of exceptional architectural ingenuity.

Built initially by Pope Julius II during the sixteenth century, this grandiose basilica was built on the presumed burial place of Saint Peter, an esteemed disciple of Jesus Christ, which encompasses centuries of history and spiritual reverence. The audio guide will tell you the story of this historic place and, climbing the dome, you will have the opportunity to dominate the city from above.

From the dome you can admire St. Peter’s Square, the Vatican Gardens, the Colosseum and from afar, and admire the Pantheon, Castel Sant'Angelo and other ancient buildings that make Rome unique.

After descending from the dome, admire Michelangelo’s Pietà, Bernini’s Canopy and the last resting places of St. Peter and other popes. Using a digital map and 27 designated listening points, the audio tour will take you on a journey through the highlights of the basilica. Explore the details of the decorations and the elaborate mosaic art that adorns the interior walls.

Remember that the entrance to Saint Peter’s Basilica is free and there are no skip the line entry.
