The BEST Tours of St. Peter's Dome

Climb St. Peter's Dome to get one of the best views in Rome

The Dome of the St. Peter's Basilica is famously designed by Michelangelo along with countless over architects and workers. Not only is it a massive structure, the tallest in Rome, but you can actually climb to the top of it!?! Entrance into the St. Peter's Basilica is free, but the dome costs money to climb. You are welcome to climb it on your own, or join a local & licensed Vatican guide who will make the journey more memorable!

There are two ways to reach the top of the Basilic of St. Peter. First, you can take steps the entire way up which is a massive undertaking. This will cost you a few Euro and a lot of time and energy. The second is to pay 10€ and take the elevator. We highly recommend taking the elevator as it will save you time and energy for only a few Euro extra.
