Explore the golden plated ceiling, optical illusions, Michelangelo’s Pietà, Bernini’s statues, and incredible mosaics, immersing yourself in a world full of magic, spirituality, and beauty. After a thorough tour of the church, head down to the Vatican Grottoes. See the tomb of St. Peter, the final resting place of 90 popes, and the remaining columns from Constantine’s original basilica.
