Arguably one of the finest Cathedrals in the entire world, St. Peter's is the spiritual center of the Vatican and the product of many of Italy's great Renaissance's architects, among them Bramante, Raphael and Michelangelo.
All reviews beautiful church peter's basilica sheer size awe inspiring security check worth the wait st peter guided tour skip the line dress code visit rome long line take your time queue architecture pieta lift
You must take a private tour - otherwise the line outside to go through security is hours long. Seriously. St Peter's is free itself. The word breathtaking does not do it justice. If you have to skip anything, don't bother with the Sistine Chapel. Between...More
Definitely buy a skip the line ticket or go really early. We showed up at 1400 and the line was several 100m long. It wasn't moving very quickly either. For whatever reason, they only had 1 metal detector running for probably at least 300 people...More
It was hard going but if you can, ignore the lift, and climb the stairs right to the cupola of St Peter's basilica, quite simply breathtakingly beautiful. To see the structure from inside, and to see the stunning altar from above.... just amazing. The basilica...More
St. Peter's Basilica is 1 of only 2 places I have ever been to where my jaw literally dropped (not a figure of speech). It is impossible to capture in a picture. It is so incredible and beautiful.

This whole area was probably nice once, but it's less a glorious place of worship now, and more a hub for ticket touts, aggressive tour sellers, street merchants, shockingly tacky gift shops around the square.
I'm not really sure what to say here. I think everyone is aware of the grandeur, history and culture. I guess I'm just verifying what most everyone else thinks. It's hard to think of going to Rome without visiting the Vatican city and St Peter's.
We paid extra to skip the line and gain entrance from the sisten chapel. Words can't describe this wonderful religious house of God. We both felt the immense power if good in the building. We were allowed to say prayers even though we aren't Christians....More

If you have bought a Vatican Museum And Sistine Chapel ticket on-line from the vatican's own site than no problem you can skip the queues and go straight to the booth at the entrance to colllect you actual ticket. Then after you have done the Vatican Museum and Sistine chapel tour, you proceed easily and with no long queue into St.Peters Basilica, large back packs are not allowed but small ones are as are cameras, just check the info on the website. The prepaid Audi guide is good and worth it so don't get suckerd into paying infinately more to join a crowded guided tour with one of the independant tour comanies.
