Tiring climb but well worth it when I reached the top.
This photo was taken after the walk to the top of St Peter's Basilica and shows the view across the square and Rome. Taken on 25 Jan 14.
biggest church in the world, and breathtakingly beautiful....!
View from entrance to altar.
Discs set into the floor mark the size of other famous churches, proving that St Peter's in the largest church in the world.
View from the top of the Dome, the best view in Rome.
An amazingly warm piece, the feelings it inspired were overwhelming
This is how close we were to the Pope after following the tour guide's advice to attempt to get in the Basilica--amazing.
Not sure how I caught this looking so empty. It was very near closing time, but minutes earlier there had been plenty of people about. Sculptures and frescos are everywhere, and overwhelming. The church is gargantuan in scale and it is difficult to imagine worshipers achieving a personal sense of communion with their god.
