St. Peter's Prison Hosted Entry Ticket + Video Guide

Jump back in time in the creepy innards of the Mamertine Prison and uncover the history of this spooky space. Skip the line and learn about the doings of Saint Peter and uncover the fate of shunned Roman emperors and kings, along with a special video guide accompaniment.

He may have been a Saint, but Peter wasn't immune to imprisonment. Once inside Mamertine however, it's said that he made water spring from the rocks and used it to baptize other inmates, jailers and visitors! 

There was just no holding him back
. Rather than be lowered into a cell through the ceiling like Peter and the shunned emperors and kings who also endured this gloomy place, you'll skip the line thanks to the hosted entry and take the stairs.

Enjoy an educational video guide on the history of this fascinating part of Via dei Fori Imperiali, which is also the oldest prison in Rome!
