Visit one of the highlights of Vatican City; St. Peter's Basilica, one of Christendom's most significant churches. Construction began in 1452 on the site where St. Peter was buried. During the next 200 years, such famous masters as Bramante, Michelangelo, Raphael and Bernini worked on its design and created an unparalleled masterpiece. Inside view Michelangelo's "Pieta" and the 85- foot-high Bernini Pulpit. At St. Peter's In Chains Cathedral, you can admire one of the many masterpieces created by Michelangelo, the famous statue of Moses.
