    Your Experience

    In the smallest state in the world lies the highest architectural point in the world, lovingly called by the Romans as the "Cuppolone"! Step inside the basilica and zoom up in the elevator to the base of the cupola. Take in the stunning views of the interiors of the Basilica.

    From here you can head upstairs to the observation deck to enjoy the exclusive views of the whole city. You'll see the Vatican Gardens, the roof of the Sistine Chapel, the chimney of the Pope's election, to name a few sights!

    Your tour continues with a visit to the main Basilica of Saint Peter's in the Vatican City State where your guide will direct your attention to the main features of this important place of worship. See where St. Peter was buried, and also some secret, hidden spots at the heart of Catholic Rome.
