The whole site was very good, what I found to be awkward was the lengthy download of the guide app. (bandwidth problem)

Everything went great.

We had booked the entrance for 15.15 o'clock - one should be there 15 min before the agreed time, so 15 o'clock... But we were asked to come back 15.30 because we had to wait for two more people (you get a group ticket). Was not so bad, because we were before 3,5 h in the Vatikanischen museums and we could rest on a bank ... then everything went problem-free, directly before the security check the barrier was opened for us, afterwards we were accompanied to the handing over of the audio guides and were instructed and then led to the queue at the elevator which was approx. 30m long (we should not worry, because it would go fast ...)...)well, we are not the most patient and still good on foot (we also knew that the lift only lifts the first 200 steps anyway, the remaining 300 you have to walk then!) and took the stairs - there you could go straight up. The audioguide worked well, but had only few sights on the map ...So if you see the beatings when arriving at St. Peter's Square, you know that the 74 € for the preferred entrance into the cathedral with dome ascent for two people were well invested.

Were repeatedly on the road with the organization! Everything's fine again!

great

The preferred entrance was really great, because otherwise there were long queues at the security check. We were checked as well, but at an extra entrance. We got the instructions and accessories for the audio guide and had to download an app on site. We used it to get information about the dome.

Description

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.
