Explore the highest point of the Eternal City. Visit the well-known Cupola of the St. Peters Basilica and be amazed by its beauty and the magnificent views it offers.
Take your chance to see the Cupola without interminable waits. Skip the long lines at the entrance and save valuable time. You’ll take the elevator to the Basilica’s base. Avoid over 170 steps and marvel at the splendid interior. Next you’ll climb to the very top, the so called La Lanterna. Enjoy the stunning views over Rome, which you can’t experience elsewhere. Look down over the Vatican Gardens, the roof of the Sistine Chapel and the mysterious chimney of the Pope's election.
At the end of the tour you’ll receive an interactive postcard, reminding you of the wonderful day. Or decide to send it to your loved ones, using the Vatican stamps you can get at the welcome desk.
Please respect the dress code: your shoulders and knees have to be covered, no sleeveless tops are allowed for both, men and women. In case you don’t adhere to the dress code, your entrance can be permitted.
The elevator will bring you up to the first level of the Dome. In order to reach the top, you’ll have to climb around 300 steps. Therefore, the tour is not recommended for people with walking difficulties or other serious medical diseases.
