Immerse yourself in the history and art of St Peter's Basilica at your own pace with this wifi audio guide. Listen on your own mobile phone or tablet and see the church's exquisite attractions in any order you like.

Receive an access code with which you'll download the audio guided tour directly to your own mobile device – using the Basilica's wifi network. See the enormous Baldachin designed by Bernini, the bronze canopy over the high altar, where you'll learn about the martyrdom of St Peter and his burial location. Gaze at the splendor of Michelangelo's 'Pietà' sculpture, or the bronze of St Peter himself – note the one polished foot on the statue, rubbed by pilgrims over the centuries.

Start at any point in the church that you like, since you don't need to follow the order of a tour leader. Spend more time admiring things you want to see most and skip things you're not as interested in – it's all up to you.

This was an unfair sales!

To date I have been a frequent user of your service in multiple countries. I thought those services were always correct though selling skip the line tickets when there isn’t a line and this seems to be the case for weeks now/ months gives me the feeling of being cheated. Don’t threat people like you don’t want to be threaten yourself.

Not great.

When we arrived at St. Peter’s, the staff said that we could not use the ticket that I purchased on this website, despite the website stating that we would get early entry nor were we able to skip the line. We had to pay an additional free when we got there to get into the basilica as the tickets from this site were invalid and had to be purchased on the day at the ticket booth (where it is cheaper too).

Tickets were not checked. They weren’t even needed. This was a waste of money. The church was beautiful but didn’t need to pay for this.

Dear Guest We are realy sorry you did not use our preffered line and the audioguide for the Basilica. In order to have the reserved line we must scan the voucher and authorize the code for the audioguided tour. Pls write an email using our website and we will try to clear your issue. Again our apoligies for whaat you are describing. Best regards

My recorder didn't work; in spite of instructions, hard to find where to pick up the recorders, and confusing where to return them. The employees were friendly when we located them.

Definitely worth buying this one. We chose the 8.45am entrance time and there was already a long queue. We found the rep and just walked straight in after security.

I paid for a self guided audio tour of the Basilica. We only wanted to see the inside of the Cathedral. I ordered and paid for the tickets from my phone for a 1:00 viewing time. We got there early around 11:00 and were pleasantly surprised that they let us go right in 2 hours early. That was great and we literally went right to the front of the line. There was no waiting at all!

Got our tickets-went right through security and into the Basilica. Lines we’re already part way around the square when we got there at 9:45, so it was worth it to pay for the skip the line.

The vest way to enter by far!
