Embark on your journey at St. Peter's Square, where the grandeur of its architecture unfolds before you. Delve into the genius of Bernini's design, uncovering hidden gems within the square and marveling at the 2500-year-old Egyptian Obelisk. Step inside the Basilica to encounter its breathtaking artworks. Traverse the vibrant marble floors, awestruck by the vastness of the structure and the opulent golden ceilings above. Guided by your expert, navigate through the main highlights. Admire the Papal Altar crowned by Bernini's majestic Baldachin and be captivated by Michelangelo's iconic masterpiece, La Pietà, in this holiest of Christian sanctuaries. Conclude your tour with a visit to the Papal Grottoes, a solemn journey beneath St. Peter's Basilica. Descend into the crypt beneath the central nave to pay homage to centuries of pontiffs and royalty interred since the 11th century.
