"St Peter's Square" Vatican City Things to Do Tip by Aaron7

Vatican City Things to Do: 800 reviews and 1,514 photos


An absolutely huge, circular forum at the entrance of St Peter's Basilica. Nearly a half million people can stand in this square at once! It also contains an obelisk deep in center of the square, and the builings lining the walls of the square are covered with dozens of statues of various saints of the Bible.
