A Majestic View of St. Peter's Basilica
One of the things I most love about Rome is that everywhere you turn, there is something breathtaking and fascinating to look at.

Recently while in Rome, I took several walking tours with Walks of Italy, a company that specializes in unique experiences focused with intimate groups and knowledgeable, fun guides. I snapped this shot of St. Peter's as the sun was setting-- it didn't matter if you were religious or not: it was a spiritual moment.

Climbing the Cupola at St. Peter's
Everyone who climbs up the cupola of St. Peter's Basilica turns into a pilgrim, no matter his faith. The view of Rome and Vatican City when you reach the top is moving, as you can almost envision the history this part of the world is steeped in.
