St. Peter's Basilica Tour with Dome Climb Description
You will meet your art historian guide in St. Peter's Square, where you'll stroll from the piazza into the Vatican City. Once you get inside, you will climb the 171 steps to the Dome. But don't worry, you can climb up the steps at your own pace and enjoy the climb while you make as many rest stops as you want.
After, you'll enjoy the marvelous view of the Vatican City stretching out, connecting to the city of Rome and its seven hills. Seize this breathtaking moment and take as many photos as you want. Trust us; you'll want to have them as a memory.
Take a short break after coming back at the ground level and before entering the St Peter's basilica. This world-famous monument will leave you amazed. Here you'll see Bernini's sculptures and Michaelangelo's art.
Tour Meeting Point
