{Rome} St. Peter's Basilica

The other famous site to see in Vatican City is, of course, St. Peter's Basilica. It is like no cathedral you've ever seen. It is huge! It can hold 60,000 people. It houses the famous Pieta by Michelangelo (which sits behind bullet proof glass.)
Julie and I climbed the 323 steep steps to the top of the dome. There we looked down on St. Peter's Square and all of Rome.
