Yes there are throngs of people all day round but one can see why: this street was designed to awe the visitor. The length of the Via della Conciliazione allows it to play a neat visual trick on us, shrinking the scale of St. Peter's...More

The main entryway into the St. Peters compound. It is a wide pedestrian pathway down the middle with vehicular traffic route on either side of the boulevard. It allows some great photos of St. Peter’s Basilica/

The long pedestrian road leads straight to the Vatican. As you near, St Pters Basilicaa becomes more prominent. Lined with a few cafes and tourist shops, and many tourists. Its difficult to get that perfect picture.

A wonderful walkway (lined with obelisk like street lights) leading to an awesome square, the town planners got this one right. If you have time be sure to visit the beautiful church. Chiesa di Santa Maria in Traspontina (see review).

Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent

pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only
business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the
tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as
