What can I expect?

Choose fast access to St. Peter's Basilica to avoid long lines and get right to the heart of one of the most stunning churches you may ever see. The Basilica is one of the largest churches in the world–it actually took over 120 years before the construction was finished. 

The Basilica's art collection evokes the table of contents from an art history textbook, for these are big name pieces that have been lauded for centuries. Michelangelo's Pietà, for example, is a famous statue depicting the body of Jesus on Mary's lap after the Crucifixion. This marble piece is has been held behind a bulletproof acrylic glass panel since being attacked and damaged back in 1972. It is the only piece that Michelangelo ever signed. 

This ticket provides an audio guide that you access via your smartphone. Learn about the Vatican, its history, and the architecture of this magnificent church as you wander through it. Take your time and hit pause as often as you'd like– there are so many details that will pique your interest!
