Beyond the glasses, it's 5 meters far, so impossible to see the details. Only for this is the bad rating..... Wikipedia has given me the details, not the eyes.
Flabbergasting. When we visited, at around lunch-time, there were no people around, so we stood in front of it for 10 minutes without any interruptions. Worth visiting Rome just to see it.
It liike like it is alive (ahem). Parts of the marble are almost transparent. The statue has it's perfect place in the Basilica
Behind glass it may be (it is tastefully lit) and yes, due to it's "fame" you may have to wait to get near it. But the wait is certainly worth it. It is a work of genius, beauty and wonder all rolled in to one. When one enters the Basilica it is your immediate right. It is a MUST SEE... More
