Full description
Explore one of Rome's most famous and magnificent sites! Discover why the American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson described this site as "an ornament of the earth … the sublime of the beautiful". St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican is the primary temple of Christianity, and is built in the Renaissance style, with a central dome dominating the skyline of Rome. As you enter the church, you will see that its interior is much bigger than those of any other cathedral. Using an official audio-guide of the Basilica, you can start your visit at any point of the church, without having to 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 led to his martyrdom and burial place. You may choose to end with "La Pietà", the masterpiece of Michelangelo Buonarroti, or with the St. Peter's bronze statue (so worshipped by all the pilgrims visiting over the centuries).

It is advisable to book the tickets in advance. The queues at the entrance and the controls are very long, but progress is fast. You could get the audio guide via the QR code, and everything worked well. I always listen to it at home when I look at the photos.

The use of an audio guide makes it much easier to understand and get to know the relevant aspects of the monument. It also brings much greater detail that a professional guide ends up not presenting. Although a professional guide ends up presenting a summary, with less time and also less detail.

The visit with audio guide is interesting but absolutely useless to skip the line (which is why I paid for this activity). In fact, the visit to San Pietro is free and there is no way to skip the line with the purchase of the audio guide as recommended. Also on the information of the activity it was written that it could be accessed from anywhere but it is not true, there is only an entrance in which backpacks and bags are checked. However, I recommend the audio guide (not to avoid the entrance queue, but for the explanations to visit the cathedral).
