Vatican City 2nd part; Inside St. Peter's Basilica

Central Europe last part; 5-days solo wandering in Italy
October 28 to November 02, 2013


According to the one of the civilian guards, Basilica will be open at 0730H. In this regard, I planned to visit it at that time to take the opportunity of fun shots with almost absolutely no crowd around. Free admission. Photography and video is allowed inside.

St. Peter's Basilica (Italian: Basilica di San Pietro in Vaticano) is a Late Renaissance church located within Vatican City. Designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, St. Peter's is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and remains one of the largest churches in the world. It has been described as "holding a unique position in the Christian world" and as "the greatest of all churches of Christendom".

The Pietà (1498–1499) is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo Buonarroti, housed in St. Peter's Basilica. It is the first of a number of works of the same theme by the artist. This famous work of art depicts the body of Jesus on the lap of his mother Mary after the Crucifixion. Thn. Michelangelo's interpretation of the Pietà is unique to the precedents.
