St. Peter's Square Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The backdrop for the Pope's speeches to the faithful, this is undoubtedly the most famous square in the world. Partially enclosed by two sweeping curved colonnades that imbue it with sobriety and solemnity, it was laid out from 1656 by Bernini, the master of Baroque. At its centre stands a 1C BC obelisk which was shipped from Heliopolis to Rome in 37AD on Caligula's orders. It was erected here in 1585 at Sixtus V's request by Domenico Fontana.

    Pros

    La place en elle même n'est pas exceptionelle, mais on est saisi par l'ambiance historique du lieu. On est au point "0" de la chrétienté. Donc frisson garanti. Et quand la visite est finie, allez prendre le frais au bord du Tibre, avec des "gelatti", encore mieux.

    Cons

    Trouver un parking n'est pas trés facile, mais çà on y arrive... si l'on échappe au style de conduite trés "Italien" des voitures et surtout des scooters ! Un regret: que l'on soit obligé de passer par des controles policiers et scanners à rayons X, bien incongrus dans un lieu ou ne devrait régner que la paix et la sérénité
