St Peters Basilica

Vatican City, Rome, Italy

Half way up you enter the dome from within St Peter's and look down from a great height
This image almost looks like a tilt-and-shift shot

From the top of the dome on St Peter's Basilica the panoramic view of Rome is spectacular
The climb up the winding ancient staircases consisting of 551 steps is a must for any photographer
Although the image is a tourist cliche shot it just had to be done!

Wonderful capture. The high ISO cameras have allowed us to get high quality photos without the tripod, a real plus at the Vatican, where the tripod police are ubiquitous.

I want the tourist shot of Rome from the top but this shot of getting has me convinced I likely wouldn't ever make it. I get vertigo from your photo alone. V.
