The church is immense. Everything was amazing, floors, doors, ceiling, mosaics, paintings, etc. Absolutely worth seeing.

“Great views”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

The interior of the church is richly decorated, but what is really amazing is the city view from the dome.

“It looks like an Aladin House.”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

A nice place to remeber & also good souveneir shops near by. You can have lot of stuffs in near by area & its a kind of main spot of St. Peters. I was in group of 7-8 so it was like a good spot to have random pics & also you can enjoy boat tours, opening of Bridges etc.

“Magnificence”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

The workmanship is fantastic, and the decor so elaborate - every surface seems to be gilded or have been artistically painted. Must have been very difficult to concentrate on a religious service!
