Join me as I take a picturesque look at St Peter’s Square in Rome, Italy.

The Vatican is a definite must when visiting the Eternal City.  This “city within a city” is enclosed in an area measuring no more than one hundred and ten acres.

Like I explained in my previous post on exploring Rome, get there early.  Especially in the busy summer months.  I did not expect a queue of that many people at 8 a.m. in the morning!

My friend and I decided to skip the queue and just hang around St Peter’s Square taking it all in. (I’d already been to the Basilica and the Sistine Chapel on a previous visit).

 An espresso, some sunshine and beautiful architecture. Can’t get more “blessed” than that!

It really is glorious.

Even though I feel the photos can’t do it justice, enjoy the pictures anyway.

Next week I’ll be showcasing the beautiful city of Taormina in Sicily.

Enjoy the pictures!
