Guide Description

Piazza San Pietro, or St. Peters Square, sits at the entrance to Vatican City in Rome. Just west of the Tiber River and within a short distance of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, the Piazza marks a point of intersection for classical and modern Roman and European histories. Many noteworthy historical figures have left their architectural and artistic fingerprints on the Piazzas development, making this site an ideal introduction to the art and sculpture exhibited in St. Peters Basilica and the Vatican Museums. A gentle walk through the Piazza reveals statues, inscriptions, colonnades, and other visually exciting features.
