From the Sistine Chapel, skip-the-line by using a secret passageway to enter into the St. Peter’s Basilica directly from the museum (not guaranteed during the Jubilee Year as special ceremonies inside the Basilica may lead to its closure). The guide will introduce to the largest and most important church in the Christian faith and also the reasons how it’s known as the home to many Renaissance and Baroque paintings.
Your three-hour tour will end at the grand St. Peter’s square, but before the tour ends the guide will also fascinate you with the story of Michelangelo’s and Bernini’s double colonnade. We guarantee that you’ll never regret the early wake!
