The Best St. Peter's Basilica Tours

Book unforgettable tours and activities including St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican City

Visiting the Vatican is a dream, but the reality is that it's a complex site to navigate on your own. If you visit alone, you'll need to visit the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, separate from the Basilica, potentially lining up twice to get inside. By booking a Vatican tour with St. Peter's Basilica you gain the privileges of a tour guide and are able to use separate entrances for the Basilica of St. Peter.

Most of the tours you can book below visit the Vatican museum before entering the St. Peter's Basilica via a side door from the Sistine Chapel. The only exception is our Vatican and Dome Climb Combo tour which starts at St. Peter's Basilica. If you are not interested in climbing St. Peter's Dome, our early entry tours are great choices for busy seasons like spring, fall, and summer. The Privileged Entrance Vatican tour is a classic that enters before general admission opening hours. Another top-rated Vatican tour is the After Hours Sistine Chapel tour with Aperitivo. It is the most exclusive small group Vatican tour you can book which enters the Sistine Chapel with a limited amount of other visitors. It even includes cocktails! St. Peter’s Basilica is spectacular from the outside, but the inside is a must-see on your trip to Rome. It’s the largest church in the world, the size of two American football fields, and was designed by famous Renaissance architects. It houses masterpieces like the Baldacchino, La Pieta, and the statue of St. Peter. Enjoy the opulence of this magnificent church on one of our skip-the-line Vatican tours. Let our passionate, English-speaking guides take you through a special side entrance and explain the stunning Basilica. View the chapel during mass on our Early Access Vatican Gold Tour or explore during the afternoon with our Skip the Line Vatican Tour.
