St. Peter's Basilica
The Basilica of St. Peter is the perfect place to conclude our Vatican early morning tour. Every inch of this 240,000 square foot church is breathtaking, but our tour goes beyond the gold & splendor, revealing a history filled with dark tales of death, deceit and debauchery. Feast our eyes on Michelangelo's his deeply touching sculpture, the Pietà, and admire the stunning interior of the dome. Last but not least, touch the worn bronze foot of St. Peter's Enthroned – legend has it that doing so might earn you a special blessing!
