What you'll do

Skip the line with this exclusive tour and get access without difficulty in the Vatican State (the smallest state in the world)!


The Vatican Necropolis - located 10 meters beneath St. Peter's Basilica, below the level of the Vatican Grottoes and in the central nave of the Basilica itself - is a Roman cemetery, placed next to the Nero’s Circus, where coexist graves dating back to the period between I and IV century (both pagan and Christian). Guests can walk the streets and admire the revered sites from the early Christian civilization and can make the pilgrimage of all the pilgrimages: here are buried the remains of the Apostle Peter, the first "pope" of Christianity.[readmore]

At the end of the Necropolis tour, you can go up in the Basilica. Saint Peter is the main temple of Christianity and is in Renaissance style with a central dome that dominates the skyline of Rome. As soon as you step across its threshold, you will see that its interior is much larger than any other Cathedral.


You start with one of the greatest masterpieces of all time: the “Michelangelo's Pieta” and soon after you will have the opportunity to pay homage to the tomb of St. John Paul II. In the heart of the Basilica, under the high altar and the famous Bernini's Canopy, you can discover the "Confession" or "Chapel of Confession", which takes its name from St. Peter's declaration of faith that leads to the site of the martyrdom.


You will see that the entire interior of St. Peter is richly decorated with marble, bas-reliefs, sculptures, mosaics and gilded stucco work: nothing is comparable in elegance and magnificence. So come and enjoy the most exclusive tour of the Vatican!
