    Vatican II: St Peter’s Basilica & Square Tour

     

    Half Day Small Group Tour

     

    Personal attention, an experienced and knowledgeable guide and an unforgettable experience – at affordable prices! That is what we guarantee with all of our small group tours.

    There is something mesmerising about the intricate nature of the ancient buildings in Rome and nonesomuch as St Peter’s Basilica, the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and the largest church in the world. Standing beneath Michelangelo’s great dome, you cannot help but feel somewhat humbled by the expansive surroundings. Get up close and personal with this great wonder in our guided tour of the Vatican St Peter’s Basilica.

    Built over St. Peter’s tomb, the Basilica took more than 120 years to complete and is one of the most important sites in Christianity. During your St Peter’s Basilica small group tour our local, expert tour guide will explain to you the fascinating history of its conception, location on the Vatican Hill, design, architecture and symbolism.

    The Vatican Grottoes contain the relics and tombs of many former Popes, including the late John Paul II. Your guide will accompany you into this area, beneath the Basilica floor, where you can view the tombs and pay your respects.

    The Basilica features several chapels and contains numerous statues and mosaic works of importance. Your guide will point out the most important, and leave you with time to look around by yourself. The Pietà, one of Michelangelo’s most well-known religious sculptures, is among the highlights of this part of your visit.

    While we would love to offer you a skip-the-line tour of the Basilica, it is not an option as entrance is free. All visitors must line-up to pass through the security check-point, including private and guided tours. For skip-the-line tours around Rome, check out some of our skip the lines small group tours here.

    Don’t risk walking around the Basilica aimlessly and missing key artworks, book a private St Peter’s Basilica tour with our expert official basilica guide today!
