Guided Tour of St Peters Basilica

After meeting up at the scheduled time at the entrance to St. Peter's Basilica, we will enter the building to explore all its corners with a guided tour.

For an hour and a quarter, we will stroll through the temple, discovering why it is the most important Catholic shrine in the world. You will hear fascinating facts, such as how long it took to complete and who contributed to its design. The guide will also reveal many wonderful secrets and anecdotes about the basilica.

Besides the history and architecture, we will also admire the world-class artworks housed here, such as Michelangelo's Pieta, Bernini's Baldachin, and the statue of St. Peter on his throne. Another place that will grab your attention is the magnificent Dome, located above the High Altar and the tomb of St. Peter.

The trip finishes by visiting the Chair of St. Peter, a wooden throne made by Bernini that, according to legend, was used by the first Pope of Christianity whom it is named after.
