St. Peter's Basilica

Admission is free, but the tail too! A very long tail, 2 to 3 hours and even up to 4 hours waiting in summer, and in full sun or in the rain. A gratuity that is expensive in terms of time lost to visit Rome, but also in unnecessary fatigue.

We strongly advise you to purchase a skip-the-line ticket in advance or book a guided tour that includes the skip-the-line ticket.

Advices Tips to Visit Saint Peter Basilica in Rome

There is no locker room and large backpacks and other large capacity bags are not allowed.

Moreover, as in all churches in Italy, a minimum of respect for clothing must be respected. No short shorts, neckline or backless, or bare shoulders.

As a rule, shoulders and knees should be covered. Short or sleeveless tops or shorts are not allowed for both men and women.

If you are in this case, plan a large scarf or shawl to cover yourself or plan more covering clothes.
