St. Peter's Basilica
St. Peter’s Basilica (if and when open): The Papal Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican is the papal enclave within the city of Rome. St. Peter’s Basilica is a working church – the largest in the world – and is therefore free to enter. It’s inside the borders of Vatican City but the public are allowed just walk into it from Rome’s streets. Lines to get in to Michelangelo’s famous basilica, which snake round the grand cloisters around the outside of the square, can be extremely long, and though they move fast can appear rather daunting.
