About this activity
Regarded as the holiest site in Christendom, St. Peters Basilica is a masterpiece of architecture right in the heart of Vatican City. This church, supposedly built where the Apostle St. Peter was crucified, started as a small chapel for the pilgrims. Today, it is a priceless masterpiece of Baroque and Renaissance art. Start the tour of the greatest Catholic church in the world with your expert private tour guide: be stunned by Michelangelo's Pieta and the Baldachin of the Pope by Bernini that marks the tomb of St. Peters underneath. Marvel at the beautiful St. Peters Square. Admire the stone colonnade that decorates both sides of the square, another masterpiece by the Baroque architect Gian Lorenzo Bernini. End your tour with a visit to the Crypt of the Popes and the famous Cupolone, the dome designed by Michelangelo.
