"Michelangelo's Moses" Basilica San Pietro in Vincoli Tip by Frisbeeace
Basilica San Pietro in Vincoli, Rome: 39 reviews and 76 photos
San Pietro in Vincoli is not a stunning church, but is quite noteworthy for Michaelangelo's magnificent statue of Moses from 1545, found to the right of the altar. Michaelangelo felt this work superior to the Pieta. It was made for the monumental tomb of Pope Julius II, and was supposed to be in the new St Peter's at the Vatican but the project was never completed.
You should combine this visit with the Colisseum which is only a few blocks apart. Access from Annabaldi which runs from the right side of the Colosseo Metro station.
