Today’s Basilica, built over Constantine’s, is the expression of the will of the Popes of the Renaissance, who availed themselves of the work of the greatest artists of their time, such as Bramante, Michelangelo, Bernini and Maderno. Along a path of art, faith and spirituality, visitors will admire the magnificence of the building, walk down the naves, visit the chapels and admire the beauty of the works of art, which include Michelangelo’s Pietà. The visit to the tombs of the Popes in the Vatican Cellars is also not to be missed.
