Before we climbed to the dome, we stopped and enjoyed the view from the gallery inside the dome to absorb the astonishing beauty of the cupola from within – and look down – the main altar.
Amazing views of the inside of the Basilica halfway up, and the most spectacular vistas of Rome from The Cupola.. Well worth the effort

Overall view is best from afar to appreciate the vastness of the basilica and to admire how this piece of artwork completes the focal point between the central alter and the space spiralling upwards towards the dome.
Our most capable guide Ms. Rosanna Peluso, RomaExperience, with the Skip the Line: Vatican Experience Tour provided historic context and background on one of the most holy remaining sites in Christendom.

One of which, that is relevant to this Commendable Site, is the fact that he was The Most-Traveled Pope in History.
#12 of 34 Sights & Landmarks in Vatican City
We were glad to be a part of this history...to be allowed to walk through the Holy Doors and also to view the impressive doors.
It's so large that you will need to walk a good 20 metres away to really get a good view of this blessed door of mercy.
Ponte Sant'Angelo Rome 1.0 km away
#42 of 1,357 Sights & Landmarks in Rome
Statues of angels flank the walkway and the bridge offers lovely views and photo opportunities of the banks of the River Tiber and autumn trees/garden on one side and from the other you can see the dome of St.Peters.
A bridge towards Castel Sant‘Angelo is beautiful itself – with baroque sculptures and remnants of the old Roman bridge (Adrian‘s Bridge), but it also opens onto a stunning view of St. Angels castle.

Popped into this incredible church on our walkabout, just one of many that as a historian and a person who really loves art and religious history appreciates the incredible sights that Rome delivers.

You can also see Peters crypt down there better than the view from the basilica.
But even so, the place has a degree of atmosphere that respects the importance of this holy site, beneath the main floor of the Basilica.
