I’ve always wanted to experience this view of St. Peter's Square from the top of the dome at St. Peter’s Basilica in #VaticanCity. Finally got the chance! ⛪️

No matter what you think about the Catholic Church, its history & influence over humanity over the years is pretty incredible. Vatican City is an independent city-state, with a population of only 1000 citizens, and the spiritual center for 1.2 billion people around the world.

Climbing up the stairs to the dome is a bit of a workout! But definitely worth it. There’s an elevator that goes part of the way, but you’ll still need to climb for a while either way. 👍🏼
