"The long and winding stairs........" St. Peter's Basilica - Climbing the Dome - Cupola Tip by bugalugs


From the roof there is a very narrow winding stair case which goes up inside the dome to the very top, where you can walk out onto a balustrade with magnificent views over the city.

Its a long way up, and if you dont like heights then you may prefer not to ascend. Also because the stairs continually wind it can also make you feel rather dizzy.

Address: Piazza San Pietro, 00120 Città del Vaticano, Vatic
