Enjoy the visit of the famous “Cuppolone” (translated from the Roman dialect: the Big Dome) the highest point of the city of Rome.

Use the Basilica’s elevator to reach the base of the Cupola (you will avoid 171 steps!). From this point you’ll have amazing views of the interior of the Basilica. Then reach the very top (named “La Lanterna”) where you can admire spectacular views of the Eternal City that just aren’t available anywhere else. Enjoy the Vatican Gardens, the roof of the Sistine Chapel and the chimney of the Pope's election.

At the end of your tour you can bring with you the interactive postcard, as a wonderful souvenir of your stay in the Vatican State (the smallest state in the world) or maybe decide to send it to your loved ones, taking advantage of the Vatican stamps, available at our welcome desks.

  • Overall good experience. was great to skip the long line. The audioguide was good, but I had to cover my knees and for that reason I wish to give only 4 stars

  • Rome Caput Mundi. With this company we had a great experience. No Line, NO wait and nice service. The smart phone POPGUIDE audioguide was a lovely surprise. I was expecting the classic audio-guide (you collect the device, you leave you id etc.etc.). They gave me a Qrcode and we downloaded the APP on the smartphone. Great, simple and with great history explained. Good job!

  • We had a timed entrance for a tour organised by Vox Mundi. We discovered the most interesting areas and learned a lot more about them than we could ever think. Great Experience!

  • The view is outstanding. Thanks to the audioguide (over the smart phone included) I have learned the DOME is the highest building in Rome. Just after I got up there I understood why this attraction is so requested! The view is incredible. We avoided any line. Was great!

  • Che bella esperienza. Erano anni che io e la mia famiglia volevamo andare sul “cuppolone”. Lunghe file ci hanno sempre spaventato. Prenotato la visita con una eccellente audioguide virtuale (su smart phone). Mi sono trovato molto be e abbiamo saltato le lunghe file. Peccato che era molto caldo.

  • I would recommended it. Queues are incredibles to get to Basilica and even longer to get up to the dome. With this company you avoid both lines .
