This was amazing!! It cost 10 euros to go up by elevator and that only took you halfway up - it took you to the part where you were inside of the dome looking down at the basilica. My indoor pictures are from that. The...More
This is one of the corwdest place in Rome and you will be totally exposed to the sun. Instead of that, visit at the end of the afternoon, for the sunset and when the lights turn on, not so many people in the square and...More
Easily another must do in Rome. We did it as a part of a skip the line Vatican Museum tour. This is absolutely the best way to do the Basilica because you get to enter from near the Sistine Chapel and do not have to...More
The Basilica is absolutely stunning! It is free entry, unless you go up the dome which is an extra €10. The wait for security can take sometime. We ended up going around 3pm after the Vatican museums and it was only a 15minute wait, but...More
St Peters square is free and also the Basilica is free but you do have to queue for about 30 minutes to go inside, but well worth the wait. There are guides trying to sell you tour tickets in the square but you dont need...More
Basking in 35 degrees even with the big hat and fountains everywhere you will see people queuing forever just to get the glimpse of the Pope. It restores faith in humanity and goodwill sacrifice indeed.
Went here after the Vatican and queued up. The queue moved quickly although we were in full sun and it was hot. You need to cover shoulders and knees inside the church so be prepared for that. You can buy a cheap scarf from the...More
If you’re in Rome this is probably on your ‘must-see’-list.
Entrance is free but wear modest clothing that covers the knees and shoulders (both men and women).

Yes-first the offficial gift shop I am remembering is if you are facing St. Peter’s and it is 12 o’clock the shop is on on your left at 10 am. However you may find better prices and a multitude of choices elsewhere. I bought some outside the hugecircular courtyard to the leftat a liturgical store. On the right side There are several gift shops and a reasonable cafeteria we ate in- that is about where the circular colonnade ends on the right. Then also on the right but outside the circular courtyard on the next street that runs parallel to the Main Street running into St. Peter’s - that street has bunches of shops with rosaries. My cousin shopped there several times. There is no shortage of rosaries around St. Peter’s. You. Just need time, money, and good shoes. And watch out for pickpockets. Hope this is helpful
