We booked an experience at 7:30. We know it was not a skip the line ticket. I think we could have done this by ourselves for half of the price. We payed 20€ extra just to be guided to the security check and the ticket office (we waited in all the queus just like other visitors, and since the line for the elevator to the dome was also long, the guide encouraged us to take the stairs - thanks for that! - and hence we did not use the included elevator ticket). We couldn't use the audio guide, since we were not informed about bringing earplugs with us. Actually, we thought we would get an audio guide on site. However, the ladies were very helpfull and we encourage visitors to visit the basilica early in the morning.

La Basílica y en especial el Domo fantástico. Un lugar único en el mundo.

Prepare yourself for a journey through the heart of Papal history, Roman architecture, and Christian symbolism at St. Peter's Basilica and its Dome!

Best of Basilica from the Dome

Your adventure begins with an elevator ride to Cupola's base. The frescos, Corinthian pillars, cornices, and frieze, all set the stage for an extraordinary ascend to the base. The base gives you the best views of the sacred spaces of the Basilica—the 95-ft bronze baldachin covering the Papal Altar or St. Peter’s tomb. Be captivated by the craftsmanship of Ambrogio Buonvicino's bronze statues of the Apostles Peter and Paul, standing as guardians of this sacred space. Don’t miss Bernini's stained-glass window, casting an ethereal glow over the gilded Apse. But the real highlight? Pope Clement VIII's meticulously adorned dome. From the outstretched hand of Christ to the busts of Popes and apostles, every detail narrates Michelangelo's vision and Rome's spiritual and artistic heritage.

Views from Rome’s Highest Peak

Ascend to Cupola's peak, called "La Lanterna," for panoramic views of the Eternal City. From the Vatican Gardens to the Tiber River, view Rome's iconic landmarks from a whole new perspective. Catch a glimpse of the formidable Castel Sant'Angelo, Victor Emmanuel II Monument, and the Pantheon’s dome.

Our audio guide, available in seven languages, will be your trusted companion as you start this artistic and spiritual exploration of St. Peter's Basilica and Dome.
