Above the main entrance you can see the Loggia of the Blessings. From this loggia the Pope blesses people. Even higher up there is the dome. The dome was designed by Michelangelo Buonarroti. Michelangelo was a great artist and architect. Romans call it “Cupolone”. Cupolone means “big dome”. It’s more than 130 metres tall. You can step 357 steps and reach it. If you arrive at the top you can see all of Rome. Inside the Basilica there are 11 chapels, 25 altars and many works of art. In the first chapel on the right there is a beautiful marble statue. This statue is called the “Pietà”. Michelangelo Buonarroti made it. In the statue the Virgin Mary holds in her arms Jesus just after he died. If you keep walking on the right side you will find Saint Peter’s statue. This statue is made of bronze. Visitors queue up to touch his foot, and in this way it has become shiny. In the centre of the Basilica there is the altar of the Pope.

"Basilica di San Pietro" it is a Catholic basilica of the Vatican City; symbol of the Vatican State, crowned by the monumental Piazza San Pietro. It is the largest of Rome's four papal basilicas often described as the largest church in the world and center of Catholicism. As a papal chapel, located adjacent to the Apostolic Palace, the basilica of St. Peter is the seat of the main manifestations of Catholic worship and is therefore in solemn function on the occasion of papal celebrations, for example for Christmas, Easter, the rites of Holy Week, the proclamation of new popes and the funeral of the deceased, the opening and closing of the jubilees and the canonizations of new saints.

I really recommend the tour that includes the Vatican Museums, the Cappella Sistina and St. Peter's Basilica. St. Peter's Basilica is one of the largest buildings in the world and is the largest of the papal basilicas. Currently St. Peter's Basilica is a building measuring 218 meters long and 136 meters high up to its dome with an area of ​​23,000 m2. This basilica has been considered an architectural work of great importance both for the size of the facade and for the quality of its work, annually it receives people from different countries of the world who come inside to admire the most beautiful sculptures of all time and appreciate a job that took centuries to build.

The most famous and important church in the world (with the amazing Michelangelo's Pietà) is just 10 minutes walk from home!

St.Peter’s is the world’s largest Basilica of Christianity, nested into the heart of the Vatican city. It was consecrated in 1626. The positioning of most of the interior furnishing of the Basilica was assigned to Bernini by his untiring pope Urbano VIII Barberini. Inside the Basilica are numerous and priceless art pieces kept in the 45 altars and 11 chapels.

Saint Peter's Basilica is a church built in the Renaissance style located in Vatican City, the papal enclave that is within the city of Rome. Designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, St. Peter's is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and the largest church in the world by interior measure.

St Peter's Basilica was until recently the largest church ever built and it remains one of the holiest sites in Christendom. Contrary to what one might reasonably assume, St Peter's is not a cathedral - that honour in Rome goes to the Basilica of St John Lateran. Getting to St Peter's Basilica independently The famous dome of St Peter is a distinctive landmark to head for, wherever you are in the nearby vicinity. The Vatican itself although a separate state to the City of Rome is located in the centre of the city and is easily reached by public transport including the Metro. We have a dedicated page devoted to travelling to the Vatican and St Peter's Square which St Peter's Basilica dominates.

St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City 🇻🇦 When I first moved to Cincinnati, a collection of Vatican artifacts was being exhibited at Cincinnati Museum Center. The Legacy of Popes was the best traveling exhibit ever hosted in Cincinnati and I had a chance to share that experience with my family. There is so much history at the Vatican. One winter, I had the opportunity to visit my Italian cousin and her family near Rome. I took that opportunity to also visit the Vatican. This is a picture from that visit. After winning two roundtrip tickets to Europe from Lufthansa, I took that opportunity to bring my mom to the Vatican and gift her that experience too.
