By Roman law, no building in Rome can be higher than Michelangelo's dome. Let's go there! Meet your expert Vatican guide beside St. Peter's Square where your climb begins, at a leisurely pace of course! It's steep and there are steps aplenty but frequent stops and elevator breaks take the strain! At the summit, 360° views of the Vatican City and far beyond await! Take as many photographs as you can because what you'll see from on high is a once-in-a-lifetime view! Rest for a short while before entering St. Peter's Basilica, an absolute triumph of art and architecture unmatched anywhere else in the world. We regroup soon thereafter for fast track entry into the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel!
