  View over St. Peter's Square
by sim1

The great thing is that you can climb the dome of the St. Peter's Basilica (see previous tip). It is quite a climb up all those stairs, but the view from the top is simply amazing! In front St.Peter's Basilica you can see the St. Peter's Square, or St. Peter's Piazza. This is an impressive square, designed by Gia Lorenzo Bernini. Looking beyond this beautiful square you have a view over Rome.
