Photographer's Note

The close up of the St. Peter's dome seen from the roof. It is possible to go to the viewing platform on the top of dome. It is not so easy as there are 320 steps and you move in a narrow space between two spheres. But then there is a reward, the view is splendid.
If you're with someone who doesn't want to climb the 320 steps to the top of the dome, they can still take the elevator to the roof, enjoy the view from the gallery inside the dome looking down into the basilica, and then hang out at the gift shop and coffee bar, while the others make the climb. If you're overly energetic, you can take the stairs that winds around the elevator to reach the roof.
