Reach the top of Michelangelo's magnificent dome on this unique tour of remarkable architecture and adventure! Views of the vast city of Rome know no end, stretching tendril-like to the blue Tyrrhenian Sea and green Castelli Romani hills. Very few tourists climb so high to see so far! At the summit, after a combination climb of steps and elevator, the sky's the limit! Back on terra firma we take a break before entering St. Peter's Basilica, a triumph of art and architecture unmatched anywhere else on earth, where Bernini's brilliance and Michelangelo's genius rise above Papal tombs and the perceived necropolis of St. Peter himself. This tour of two parts avoids the crowds every step of the way!
