Overview

    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.

    Dear Diego, Hoax and misleading is what you are writing. On our website we explain there is a dedicated line (reserved) for visitors/guest purchasing our services (audio-guides, guided tours etc.etc.) in the Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican. the other 1K reviews express great satisfaction in what we are offering and we are very sorry your missed our dedicated entrance. Pls write an email directly to us and we can fix the issue. Best regards
