Tips from the community

I’ve saved one of the best till last, St Peter’s Square is a photo opportunity no visitor to Rome can miss. Make sure you’ve had a coffee before you arrive because there are plenty of spots for you to take photos from; The Piazza, The Basilica’s Interior and The Dome. The dome ids the best spot but you’ll have to work for one of the most instagrammable photos in Rome. You’ll have to climb up to the top of St Peter’s Basilica, navigating up the tight staircase will be a distant memory when you look out over the piazza.
