History of St. Peter’s Basilica
It is helpful to have a little history about the place you need to visit so that you know where to look. I like to do a little research. I use my own research to determine if it would be handy to have a tour guide (I purchased my ticket here). Allow me to tell youpersonally, St. Peter’s is more than meets the eye.
Standard Tour Itinerary
The St. Peter’s Basilica is truly the second building to honor the martyrdom of St. Peter. Nero killed Peter around 64 A.D. Around 313 A.D. Emperor Constantine allowed Christians to construct memorials and places of worship. Throughout the time when the Popes left Rome, almost 1000 years after the original St. Peter’s Basilica was falling apart. It would not be until the middle of this 15thcentury when Pope Nicholas V, contracted Bernardo Rossellini, to draw up strategies for improving the basilica. It wouldn’t be until the 16th century once the significant changes to the building would begin under the art of architect Donato Bramante in the leadership of Pope Julius II.
The building you see now occurred over 150 years to finish. Not one of the very first basilica remains but the place. Masters worked structure, on the building within these years and you will understand their fingerprints all.
But there is more than meets the eye when it comes in St. Peter’s Basilica. In other words, there is nave and the façade to gawk at.
Obviously that you want to devote time in amazement. But, there is more. Look at investing in a tour, you do not need to miss these gems’ details.
