The Basilica of San Pietro, the true heart of Christianity, the seat of the Popes, is the place where faith, history and art come together in a unique synthesis of majesty and beauty. You will be amazed by the long history of this place, from the first kiosk built on the tomb monument of Pietro, passing through the basilica erected by Constantino to get to that you can see today, the result of the prophetic vision of the Popes of the Renaissance and the '600s.
We will visit all places, the aisles, the chapels and the works of art contained in them, where the genius and imagination of great artists, such as Michelangelo, Bernini, Raphael, just to name a few, are expressed to the fullest extent of human . And inside every monument, we will also see the living history of men, popes, saints, artists who have dedicated their lives to the Church and to spread the Christian message.
You will have the opportunity to visit the Basilica with the help of an audioguide content-rich, detailed and curious anecdotes.
We remind you that to the entrance with guided tour or with audioguide, you must arrive 15 minutes before to the booked service.
