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!
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
