"St. Peter's Basilica" St. Peter's Basilica - Basilica San Pietro Tip by phred1910

 
 

Alas, I can't give you much of a desription of the inside of the Basilica, as my short pants caused me to be refused admission. It was 32 C, so I wasn't about to wear long pants. Next time I come with the zipper pants. The outside is pretty amazing, but better seen from afar, a great view is from Castel Sant' Angelo.

Rules: no shorts, no short skirts, no bare shoulders...Strictly enforced !!!!
