Full description
We will meet in the St Peters square by the fountain on the right-hand side. After a warm welcome and a bit of getting to know each other, I will begin introducing the story of St Peters to you. Upon entering the church there is a mandatory/quick security check. Lauded as the pinnacle of Renaissance architecture the towering dome of Saint Peter's can be seen from all over the eternal city. Michelangelo's dome is still to date the tallest point in Rome - despite the fact it is 500 years old! We use special access tickets in St. Peters Basilica with the elevator so you can see how magnificent Rome looks from the very top of St Peters.

It was one of the best experiences I've had in Rome so far! It was my third tour with this company, and I have to admit that everything went well and was amazing every time! Rome is amazing from the top of St Peters. Last but not least, our guide Barbara was so knowledgeable, had great English, and felt like a friend by the end of the tour!

Our tour guide, Fi (not sure of the spelling) was amazing! Loved her energy throughout. She gave just enough information to keep us entertained.
