St Peter’s Basilica and Mosaic School guided tour

Don't miss this guided tour: discover the St. Peter's Basilica incredible treasures and visit the unforgettable Mosaic School in Vatican.

About this activity

Combine a guided walking tour of St. Peter’s Basilica with a visit to the Vatican Mosaic School. Start your tour in St. Peter’s Square and reach the Basilica. Learn more about the world’s biggest church and explore all its corners.

Admire artistic highlights such as the mosaics of the Dome or the Michelangelo’s Pietà statue.
Visit the tomb of St. John Paul II, one of the most important figures of all time.

It’s a little-known fact that St. Peter’s Basilica doesn't have any paintings, but that its walls are instead adorned with stunning mosaics. So, there’s a very good reason to know more about this art and pay a visit to the Mosaic Studio.
Meet artisans who work on the restoration of historical mosaic pieces and learn more about their techniques.

    Un po lungo come tour ma davvero una esperienza straordinaria. Ci ha portato indietro di 2000 anni e la guida è stata meravigliosa. Piccolo gruppo di ospiti con noi tutto in italiano. Ottima esperienza i nostri bambini si sono divertiti tanto.

    Wonderful combination of 2 services. We started with the Basilica tour and we kept the same guide for the Cupola. In total 2,5 hrs of tour. Worthwhile.

    We saw the queue for St. Peter's Basilica, and after a long day at the Vatican museums we did not want to spend 90 min skip the queue Dome to to get in. We booked their , we were inside in 10 minutes. Great value for money! The guide was excellent
