Combo: St Peter’s Basilica and Mosaic School guided tour

Enjoy an exclusive tour of the Vatican City that not only offers reserved entry into St. Peter’s square and a tour of the Basilica, but also includes a visit to the Mosaic School (or Studio).

Our staff will meet you in the Square and lead you to the entrance of the Basilica, where your tour will begin. You will be guided through the most famous and fascinating church in the world.

This tour will allow you to discover both the most famous and the more hidden parts of this temple of Christianity, including Michelangelo’s “Pietà” and Bernini’s Baldachin.

Following the visit of the Basilica, you will continue your discovery of the Vatican City State, as you wander within its walls, until you reach the Mosaic School.

Not everyone knows that St. Peter’s Basilica does not have any paintings but that its walls are instead adorned with spectacular mosaics. It is for this reason that a visit to the Mosaic School – lead by expert of the School – is the best possible way to end this type of tour.
