Important information

Know before you go

  • Please note. Due to Covid restrictions the corridor between St. Peter's Church & the Sistine Chapel is temporarily closed to the public. The distance between the two sites without this access means that a guided visit inside St. Peter's Basilica will not be possible. To make the most out of your visit, your guide will give you a full introduction to the Basilica and explain how to visit the Basilica on your own after the tour.
