"Holy See!" Vatican Tip by mrclay2000

Vatican, Rome: 123 reviews and 315 photos

  Piazza San Pietro and obelisk
by mrclay2000

For Roman Catholics worldwide, this viewpoint is a sacred must in their lifetime agenda. For architecture enthusiasts, there is enough here to occupy for days. For general travelers, this vast arena will wear you down with its sheer scale, its unparalleled capacity, and the enormous dimensions of the basilica. No photograph clearly demonstrates the true distance from the tip of the tentacular arms by which you entered Vatican City to the colossal entrance on the portico of St Peter's.
