What to Expect
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 a nice tour. Major parts like The Pieta and St. Peters Statue were closed so we missed a LOT. Still the skip the line was very helpful, but there is a lot of confusion about how to get your tickets and get started....More

includes both. what happens is they take you to the front of the line and provide the audioguide once inside (in the cloakroom). do bring headphones to use the guide, otherwise it costs 1 eur extra
