Explore one of Rome's most famous and magnificent sites without the long lines and using your own device! Discover why the American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson described this site as "an ornament of the earth … the sublime of the beautiful"
St. Peter is the primary temple of Christianity and is built in the Renaissance style with a central dome that dominates the skyline of Rome. As you enter the church, you will see that its interior is much bigger than those of any other cathedral.
You will be provided with an access code that will allow you to free download (through the Basilica WiFi network) the audio guided tour of the Basilica: you can start you visit at any point of the church, without having to necessarily follow the order dictated by the presence of a guide.
You can decide – for example – to begin with the heart of the Basilica, beneath the high altar and the Bernini's Baldachin, where you will discover the “Confession” or “Chapel of the Confession”, in reference to the confession of faith by St. Peter, which lead to his martyrdom and burial place.
And end with "La Pietà" the masterpiece of Michelangelo Buonarroti or with the St. Peter's bronze statue (so venerated by all the pilgrims visiting even to be consumed by all the hands that have touched it over the centuries!)
So, what are you waiting for? Come and enjoy the Queen of all of the Basilicas!
