Regardless of your religious affiliation, Catholic or not, St. Peter's Basilica is one of the places you will never ever forget! With reverence and awe, this massive and magnificent Church goes back to the time of the Renaissance, where the Italian art masters such as Michelangelo, Bernini, Raphael, to name a few, once walk on it's marbles floors to create magnificent frescoes, sculptures (The Pieta) , and architectural wonders dedicated to God. When you go, no wearing of sleeveless outfit, shorts, mini skirts, plunging neckline , especially if you are a woman.

For me personally, going to Vatican is one of my goals. I went there to see the big historical Church - because im a catholic, when all big events happens. The best part is when we can enter the Church in a short time and wow.. the architecture is amazing. I love architecture as well, and for sure this place is a must go for Classical Architecture lover.

Two special parts that are must sees. The papal crypts downstairs and climbing up 550 stairs to look out over Rome. Wow

The cathedral is mind blowing and stunning inside. Very big and so much to see including the Papal crypt. The visit to the dome and the Cupola are a must but the stairs are a killer. Well worth the effort as the views are amazing. I was surprised to find toilets, a gift shop and a cafeteria on the roof too

See it to believe it.
