Italy St. Peter's View

About this spot
This spot offers a spectacular view of St. Peter’s Basilica from the Tiber. Unlike all the other Papal Major Basilicas, it is wholly within the territory, and thus the sovereign jurisdiction, of the Vatican City State, and not that of Italy. It is the most prominent building in the Vatican City, and its dome is a dominant feature of the skyline of Rome. Probably the largest church in Christendom, one may be surprised to learn that St. Peter is neither the Pope's official seat nor first in rank among the Major Basilicas of Rome. This honor is held by the Pope's cathedral, the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran which is the mother church of all churches in communion with the Catholic Church.

Directions

This view is taken from the bridge at the junction between Lungotevere Tor di Nona and Ponte Umberto I. It is best reached by public transport, or on foot. From Piazza Venezia head to the bus stop in Via del Plebiscito (180m), take the 30, 70, 81, 87, 492, or 628 bus to Corso del Rinascimento and get out at Via Zanardelli after 4 stops. Walk for about 2 minutes (100m) to the Tiber. Or walk from Piazza Venezia - about 19 mins at a leisurely pace (1.5 km). I would only consider travelling by car if visiting well before sunrise. Parking fees apply between 08:00 and 23:00 (excluding holidays and Sundays).
