What You'll See Along the Way
St. Peter’s Square in is one of the most famous (and certainly one of the most holy!) sights in the world. It was designed in the 17th century by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, who was known as the most accomplished architect in Rome at the time. Pope Alexander VIII, who commissioned the piazza, asked Bernini to emphasize St. Peter’s importance as “the gateway to Heaven” and the architect implemented the request beautifully. He divided the square into a smaller trapezoidal area adjoining the Basilica and an oval main part, which together create a ground plan in the shape of a giant keyhole.

What Our Customers Say...
I wanted to send a thank you and a recommendation regarding our visit of St Peters Basilica with Mateo on Saturday morning. We had a wonderful time, we learned an amazing amount of information and found that Mateo was passionate and knowledgeable about his topic. It was a wonderful morning!
We scheduled the St. Peter church climbing tour & met with tour guide Matteo. Our family is the only group that morning & glad they did not cancel the tour so we have up close and personal experience with Matteo. He is very knowledgeable and humor. We heard lots of fun facts and stories. Highly recommended this tour.
Focusing on St. Peter's was incredible. We did the afternoon Vatican Tour and then this the next day. Our guide Matteo really put that spark into everything we saw. The view from the top was superb.
