Head for heights
Climbing the Dome...there are 551 steps up to the Cupola of St. Peter's Basilica Dome. But then you get this wonderful view of the city and the Tiber. Last time I climbed it, it was in November and there weren't too many people willing to brave the cold wind. This time 'round, it was crowded even at 8:30 AM. The day was quite beautiful so it was easy to take pictures. Here's the interior of the dome.
