It's hard to imagine just how large the piazza is until you are physically standing in it. We happened to have visited on the day a large ceremony was taking place, so it became easy to imagine how crowded it would be when the Pope would be speaking. It's an architectural beauty!
Oh - and don't miss the little post office in the middle of the square!
