    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.

    Easy to find the contact persons for ‘skip-the-line’. Saved us from a lot of waiting time in the sun. Definitely worth the money. The tour itself is a must when visiting Rome. Magnificent building and a lot of history

    Skipping the line definitely needed. But the “guide” involves downloading an App using terrible WiFi and holding the phone to your ear if you forgot to bring your earbuds. No thanks. Audio guided tours can be fine but downloading a single purpose app at the...More

    Dear Guest, we are sorry that your experience was not appreciated, but this certainly does not depend on Vox Mundi. Unfortunately, on October 1st, 4th and 5th there were special Masses inside the Basilica, therefore you found lots of chairs and little space to move....More

    As the other person said there is no fixed time. At st. Pete’s. If it’s at all a nice or busy day the line will extend for hundreds and hundreds of yards. All this ticket does is let you bypass that line. Enter the... More
