Just lie and say you're a new convert.


On an another note, it would be interesting to see the backlash if the Vatican declared that you werent able to enter the city of Rome unless you were Catholic.... silly religions... oh well... cool tower though!

Wow, look at the arabesque in the last pic, it's so beautiful and detailed. I wish those who take pics get larger images of these.

Could it be considered one of the biggest manmade constructions ever?
Pyramids, temples... no one of them is bigger than this.
