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.

  • I didnt want to go there and i didnt like the tour to Mosaic School. But my wife was insisting and we went there. The Church is ok, the biggest in Rome.

  • Мне было очень интересно, так как я занимаюсь реставрацией. Очень любопытно пообщаться с мастерами и узнать их технику работы. Кто-то сказал что дорого, но оно того стоит. Можно сэкономить на пицце.

  • 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.
