What can I expect?

With this ticket you get fast access to St. Peter's Basilica, avoid too long queues and get right to the heart of one of the most stunning churches you may ever see. Bronze, gold, marble and admirable art are just a few of the things you come across here. The Basilica is one of the largest churches in the world - and it actually took over 120 years before the construction was finished.

To the right of the entrance to the Basilica you find for instance Michelangelo's Pietà, a famous work of art that depicts the body of Jesus on the lap of his mother Mary after the Crucifixion. This marble statue is held behind a bulletproof acrylic glass panel, after the statue was attacked and damaged back in 1972. It is the only art piece that Michelangelo ever signed. 

Further into the Basilica you can find Bernini's Baldacchino, a sculpted bronze canopy, which is as impressive as it is tall. There are so many art works and details to pay attention to. Your audio guide teaches you about the Vatican, its history and the architecture of this magnificent church as you wander through it. Make sure to take your time to admire it - this is a truly unique experience!
