St Peter's Square 1/1 by Tripoto

St Peter's Square

Eva Polino
The St. Peter's square where thousands await to catch a glimpse of the Pope is the perfect place to end this tour. This huge plaza right outside the St. Peters' Basilica is the center for a lot of activities in the Vatican. In the middle of it is the four-thousand-year-old Egyptian obelisk designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. There is also a beautiful granite fountain designed by Bernini to look forward to here.
