Arguably one of the finest Cathedrals in the entire world, St. Peter's is the spiritual center of the Vatican and the product of many of Italy's great Renaissance's architects, among them Bramante, Raphael and Michelangelo.

Short walk from the city center is the magnificent St Peter’s Church. The line moves fast and the entrance is free (a small fee if you want go up the dome) so ignore all the oncoming “guides”. Do everyone a favor and prepare for security...More
No comments on the Basilica given the tens of thousand of other reviews. However...
If you are in relatively good shape, do the dome climb. It is not for the faint of heart, claustrophobics, or those with bad knees. Adults cost 8 Euro to do...More
Okay been there 4 times. Why 2 stars. Well a month and half in Europe and based on beauty its up there but there are other churches just as beautiful and you do not half to wait in line for 2 hours as it pour...More
One of the biggest Churches in the world..It's breathtakingly beautiful...See the work of Michelangelo on the structure...Pope presides here..We took a guided tour of Vatican City and tickets to enter here were included...Always crowded with tourists...
With so many churches in Rome it's easy to be complacent with them. This one is obviously the biggest and for the wow factor we made it the first church we visited. It's so we'll preserved and clearly there is a lot of money within...More
Best part of the Vatican (Other than the room of maps)...
Incredible. So beautiful and moving. The detail and art is one of a kind.

On previous trips I only saw St. Peters after it was crowded with a lot of tourists. The church is beautiful but with this people you cannot even appreciate properly. The last summer I decided that I need to visit that place again, to be...More

If you have bought a Vatican Museum And Sistine Chapel ticket on-line from the vatican's own site than no problem you can skip the queues and go straight to the booth at the entrance to colllect you actual ticket. Then after you have done the Vatican Museum and Sistine chapel tour, you proceed easily and with no long queue into St.Peters Basilica, large back packs are not allowed but small ones are as are cameras, just check the info on the website. The prepaid Audi guide is good and worth it so don't get suckerd into paying infinately more to join a crowded guided tour with one of the independant tour comanies.
