It was very busy, and was set up for mass. Every two minutes we were asked if we wanted to buy jump the line tickets, which was quite annoying. When we said we had tickets we were left alone very quickly but then another person would ask again. The square is stunning would have been nice to be left alone to enjoy the view.

A huge space - it is all a littel mind boggling. Can't imagine what it would be like when packed! We were tired though so were happy to make our way to some food and drink just outside the square.

Fabulous place which looks today the same as 1000 years ago. I usualy enjoy only to sit under the marmour colons and to look at the San Peters Dome and do nothing. Great...

Huge and beautiful square. Lots of people in line for St, Peters Basilica. Outside square lots og souvernir- and gift shops. Worth a visit.

St. Peter's Square is a large public plaza located directly in front of St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City. This square is impressive but mind you, the queue is very long since it is free to visit. The sculptures here are gorgeous and it is the very place where you can see the Pope's appearance on many TV appearances. Impressive and not to be missed.
