"This is the front of the..." Vatican City Things to Do Tip by Patricialuv

Vatican City Things to Do: 794 reviews and 1,492 photos


This is the front of the Vatican (St. Peter's Basilica) As you can see, it is huge, believe me. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the architectural perfection of it!
The architectural design, the tranquility of it all (even if at the time you visit it seems crowded).
When you're inside, many statues (famous ones) like La Pietá will be on your right side. Underneath the Basilica lay many rests of deceased popes and some saints.

Address: Vatican, in Rome, Italy

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
