What to Expect
Immerse yourself in the history and art of St Peter's Basilica at your own pace with this wifi audio guide. Listen on your own mobile phone or tablet and see the church's exquisite attractions in any order you like.

Receive an access code with which you'll download the audio guided tour directly to your own mobile device – using the Basilica's wifi network. See the enormous Baldachin designed by Bernini, the bronze canopy over the high altar, where you'll learn about the martyrdom of St Peter and his burial location. Gaze at the splendor of Michelangelo's 'Pietà' sculpture, or the bronze of St Peter himself – note the one polished foot on the statue, rubbed by pilgrims over the centuries.

Start at any point in the church that you like, since you don't need to follow the order of a tour leader. Spend more time admiring things you want to see most and skip things you're not as interested in – it's all up to you.

Quick Visit

Waste- Self Tour didn't work

You don't need this if you have any other tour. None of the tours specify that once you do a tour for the Vatican Museum or the Sistene you end up inside with no need for a different ticket to the basilica. There was no...More

Don’t waste your money on this for early morning entry.

We arrived at 8 am and found the place empty, so rather than looking for the guide to enter we helped ourselves in. I can see this making sense after 10 or 11 am when crowded, but I think it was dishonest to offer this...More

includes both. what happens is they take you to the front of the line and provide the audioguide once inside (in the cloakroom). do bring headphones to use the guide, otherwise it costs 1 eur extra

You can probably do it at the hôtel. Take care some people proposed it in the street but it was more expensive
