"St Peter's Dome" St. Peter's Basilica - Climbing the Dome - Cupola Tip by Jmill42

  Don't slip!! Its a long way down!!!
by Jmill42

From inside or outside St. Peters Dome, the views are impressive. The dome itself is 133 meter high. You really don't have any concept of how high that is, until you can make the trip up into the dome. My suggestion is to first go into St Peters and walk underneath the dome. Take notice of the writing around the dome's ring. It looks like little writing. Then, take yourself up to the dome and have another look at those little letters! They are 7 feet tall!! This visual image can only be appreciated when you do it. Trust me.

Address: Piazza San Pietro, 00120 Città del Vaticano, Vatic
