Overview

Embark on the St Peter’s Dome Climb, an action-packed walking tour to the summit of Rome and the Vatican, admire the stunning interiors of St Peter’s Basilica, and enjoy fast-track entry to the Vatican Museums, arguably the most important art collection in the world!

Meet your guide for the day, an art historian, at St. Peter’s Square and stroll across the piazza into the Vatican City. The tour starts with Rome’s most unforgettable experience, the St Peter’s Dome Climb. There are 551 steps to cover (phew!) so we make the journey in parts by elevator and steps. Take in the most stunning views of the Vatican City as it extends out into Rome and its seven hills. Make sure that you capture the beauty of this moment through your lenses as this is a truly unparalleled view!

Enjoy a tour of St Peter’s Basilica, an absolute triumph of art and architecture that is unmatched anywhere else in the world. See Bernini’s sculptures and Michelangelo’s art rise above holy papal tombs and the perceived necropolis of St. Peter himself.

Regroup at the meeting point at 11:30am to enjoy a fast-track entry to the Vatican Museums. Explore the Classical Antiquities Museums, Gallery of Maps, Round Room, Hellenistic art in the Belvedere Courtyard, and of course, the Sistine Chapel at your own leisure.

The ultimate Vatican adventure that simply cannot be missed!
