    Don't bother joining the queue. Just pretend to be Italian and push your way to the front. Stand on people's toes for added effect

    Rome has lots of churches but this one is especially worth a visit. Climb up the stairs to get an unforgettable view of Rome early in the morning.

    Catch beautiful sunlight inside the cathedral during sunsets. The best time for taking pictures!

    The heart of Christianity is huge and really impressive. Climb the stairs of Cupola and enjoy the sight of Rome. Every Sunday at noon you can see the Pope standing at the window for the blessing.

    Did you know? More than 15,000 people a day pay a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome!

    After 120 years as a building site, the current St Peter's was consecrated on 18 November 1626 by Urban VIII - exactly 1,300 years after the consecration of the first basilica on the site.

    €5 to climb 551 steps to the top. €7 includes an elevator ride for the first half, leaving you with 320 steep and tight steps to climb.

    Don't miss a Vatican post office on the of the roof. Original stamps, cards, envelops and printing cachet. Check up the working hours and send a letter from the skies.

  • Rachael K.

    What a climb! Not for claustrophobics or the faint hearted. However, the view is out of this world and you burn off the calories of the gelato you reward yourself with when you get down

    Rachael Kerr · August 25, 2013
  • Vagelis B.

    Although the steps are a real challenge to climb, the view on top is worth it!!

    Tio crowded in the morning. Head first to the museum and then the Basilica. At lunch time the line is way much smaller!!

    highly recommended: ➀ Latin mass ➁ confession (may get a card with Papa BXVI msg ➂ mass presided by Papa (make sure u arrive at least 2.5 hours before mass begins)

    "Uno dei simboli della città, ribattezzato dai romani 'Cuppolone'. Solo dopo averlo scalato si apprezza veramente quella P di troppo... Se solo fosse possibile se ne vorrebbero aggiungere delle altre"

    Il 18 novembre del 1626 l'immensa basilica fu finalmente consacrata da Urbano VIII.

    В соборе святого Петра можно загадывать любое желание. Нужно коснуться бронзовой фигуры мученика. В руках он держит связку ключей - ключи к счастью каждого из живущих на Земле людей

  • Ivan F.

    Проход на купол правее основного. Лучшего вида на город не найти. Лучше идти пешком, там не безликая винтовая лестница.

    Ivan F. · January 15, 2013
  • Паша Д.

    обязательно поднимитесь на купол. самая лучшая панорама на рим. когда будете брать билет, не берите лифт. он бесполезен

    Обязательно берите аудиогид. Рассказывает прекрасно! Настолько хорошо и проникновенно, что пару раз даже слезы наворачивались:)

    Lugar obrigatório e de uma energia de arrancar lágrimas. Sonho antigo, realizado com superação das expectativas. Faça as visitas com audio-guias, que fornecem muitas informações sobre os elementos.

    Attenti ai vestiti. Dopo il metal detector controllano davvero la lunghezza delle gonne delle donne e i calzoncini degli uomini. Se non rispettate il dress code non entrate

    Если у вас клаустрофобия или лишний вес - лучше не идти: узкие переходы. К концу ступенек крыша под углом. Но вид шикарен. Можно заплатить чуть больше и сэкономить 200 ступенек.

    Artem Lopata · September 22, 2013
  • Taya

    Одно из любимейших мест Рима.Обязательно поднимаетесь на верхушку собора,а еще, если будет возможность, приходите на площадь перед собором в воскресенье к 12 часам, тогда вы сможете увидеть Папу

    Vista maravilhosa ao final! Você tem que pagar 5 Euros para entrar SEM elevador e 7 Euros COM elevador. Sem elevador nao é tão cansativo. Já fui das duas formas.
