Enter the Vatican City State (the smallest state in the world) with this exclusive guided tour of Vatican Necropolis and St. Peter's Basilica!

The Vatican Necropolis lies under the Vatican City, at depths varying between 5–12 meters below Saint Peter's Basilica.

You can explore an authentic Roman cemetery and see graves dating back to the 1st and 4th centuries, including the tomb of the apostle Peter, the first Pope of Christianity.
Once you’re done with the Necropolis tour, you’ll reach the St. Peter’s Basilica, the papal enclave within the city of Rome and heart of Catholicism. Marvel at masterpieces of religious art, such as Michelangelo's “Pietà” or the Altar of the Confession. During the tour, you will have the opportunity to pay respect to the tomb of St. John Paul II, the most important Pope of the 20th century.

Admire Bernini's “Baldacchino” and visit the “Confessio” or “Chapel of the Confession”, in reference to the confession of faith by St. Peter, which led to his martyrdom.
Be amazed by the rich ornamentations of marble, bas-reliefs, sculptures, mosaics and gilded stucco work throughout the cathedral.

  • Nella mia vita ho visitato tantissime città europee e non, ma nonostante io sia italiana ho visto Roma per la prima volta alla veneranda età di 68 anni. E la basilica di San Pietro è uno dei posti più "toglifiato" che io abbia mai visto. Peccato non averlo fatto prima

  • Il saltafila è sicuramente un vantaggio in giornate calde come quella di ieri. Nella necropoli, oltre ad un'atmosfera di grande spiritualità ho trovato il sollievo di un luogo fresco. Consigliato a tutti!
