Piazza san Pietro is one of the biggest and most beautiful squares of Rome, from which you can access to the smallest but most powerful State of the Christian world: The Vatican city, which is also the residence of the Pope, head and spirit of the Christians. The square, the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica are the works of the greatest Italian painters, sculptors and architects that the world had ever known: i.e. Bramante, Rossellino, Antonio da San Gallo, Raffaello, Michelangelo, Bernini and Borromini.
The square is designed with a big elliptic porch with a front opening and a large main street “Via della Conciliazione” to welcome and accommodate as many pilgrims and visitors as possible. The dome is perhaps one of the largest in the world and you can see it from each corner of the city as to symbolize that the city itself is protected by it. Insides the visitors can admire some of the most famous masterpieces the “Pietà” and the “ Last Judgement” both made by Michelangelo, the “Philosofical School” made by Raffaello and countless sculptures and frescoes painting, all of them kept in the Vatican Museums.
