This Piazza San Pietro Walking Tour, or St. Peter’s Square, sits at the entrance to Vatican City in Rome. Just west of the Tiber River and within a short distance of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, the Piazza marks a point of intersection for classical and modern Roman and European histories. Many noteworthy historical figures have left their architectural and artistic fingerprints on the Piazza’s development, making this site an ideal introduction to the art and sculpture exhibited in St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums. A gentle walk through the Piazza reveals statues, inscriptions, colonnades, and other visually exciting features. Explore these and more with your expert personal guide, available 24/7 on your schedule!

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
