Cupola di San Pietro is the dome atop St. Peter’s Basilica, one of the most famous attractions in the area. You can climb to the top of the dome for breathtaking views of the city, but be warned that it is a challenging ascent. An elevator will take you up the first section. To reach the very top, you climb a spiral staircase without a handrail. Visitors early in the day will find the shortest lines.

Cupola di San Pietro reviews
Beautiful place, amazing architecture. worth visiting the place. There is no entry fees for the church and square, but to avoid long queues you can buy fast entry pass. Make sure sleeveless and clothes below knees are not allowed inside the church. Tour guides and also audio tours are available before entering the church. Place is worth exploring.
I really enjoyed been there, the feelings that you got been in this place are amazing, the greatness of the monuments around and inside the Basilica make you feel like if you used a time machine! It take you away from where you really are, could make you feel tiny too, but I a good way, enjoying the work of thousands of people through hundreds of years.. I am not a religious person (even knowing that I had been in contact with different branches of Christianity and others religions thought) I recommend to anyone that appreciate art and history, even if don't, you should go there, it may awake something inside of you that may change your perspective about all that.
