Itinerary

Even if you put your trip to Rome on the back burner this year because of the pandemic and travel restrictions, we still want you to dream about Italy. Get ready to virtually be here and take a look at one of the most beautiful areas of Rome (which is in fact Vatican territory): St Peter’s Square, the heart of Catholicism.

This is why we’d love to save you a spot in an interactive tour we’ve set up for you, so you can see this very special place in the heart of Rome through the very eyes of our go-to certified local guides. And it is a great gift idea too!

The live tour will allow you to interact with your guide and ask them questions. So why wait? There’s no time like the present, so just join us: You won’t regret purchasing this experience!

After showing you St Peter’s Square, the Egyptian Obelisk in the center, the Twin Fountains on each side, and the famous Bernini’s colonnade which embraces the Basilica and projects its arms in a warm attempt to welcome the pilgrims, your guide will share with you the traditions behind a pope’s election and show you the interiors of the Church starting from the Holy Door (or “Porta Santa”), the focal point of papal liturgies during the Jubilees.

What’s inside is jaw-dropping! La Pietà by Michelangelo, the Dome, by the same artist, the all-pervading mosaics (artworks that appear to be paintings but are not), St Peter’s statue, the resting place of pope John Paul II, the bronze canopy (or “baldacchino”) built by Bernini in a baroque style located above the main altar and underneath the dome, and more.

The tour will then take you to the street again, along via della Conciliazione and the Passetto di Borgo, an elevated passageway 2,600 ft long used in the past as an escape for popes under threat. It connects the Vatican to Sant’Angelo Castel, another must-see monument in Rome. Once the guide has reached it, he will unveil the many purposes it used in history – from tomb to prison to castle - and its main features.

The tour will end on Sant’Angelo Bridge (or “Pons Aelius), a monumental bridge built in ancient times and renovated by the popes so its balustrades are now decorated with statues of angels, evangelists and patriarchs. The bridge is now pedestrian only, and provides a scenic view of the Castle and over the Tiber, Rome’s legendary river.
