Private tour for families to St. Peter's Basilica

Come to visit the biggest basilica in the world! Its history and masterpieces are little appreciated by those who are within easy reach and are accustomed to them. But how many of us really know how it was created, why it's so important, and which precious treasures are preserved in it?

Built on the grave of the first pope, over time it gave rise to a quarter which became the real spiritual centre of Rome and the world. "The fabric of St. Peter's", the centuries it took to build it, the episodes and the historical characters: the emperor Nero and the first persecution of Christians; the emperor Constantine and the construction of the first basilica; the magnificent Renaissance and baroque reconstruction; the Pietà and the dome of Michelangelo; the raising of the obelisk; the astonishing works by Gian Lorenzo Bernini...these are only some of the topics that we will discuss while we admire the stately construction!
