ST. PETER BASILICA

The largest shrine on earth. St. Peter's has the largest interior of any Christian church in the world, holding 60,000 people. Catholic tradition holds that Saint Peter's tomb is below the altar of the basilica. For this reason, many Popes, starting with the first ones, have been buried there. As a work of architecture, it is regarded as the greatest building of its age.

mamma mia che monumentalità Roma

Angeli e Demoni (di cui sono andato a vedere l'anteprima romana) è una cagata per nordici ignoranti. Ma se serve a far venire i suddetti nibelunghi in Italia ben venga. Pecunia non olet

Niente da fare, Roma è una città autunnale e invernale. Dovrebbe essere vietato visitarla in estate.
Concordo. Penso che molte delle immagini di Roma che hanno all'estero sono generate dal fatto che l'80% dei turisti la visita in estate e si deve barcamenare tra sole e afa soffocante (per un nordico è ovvio), servizi impoveriti, romani latitanti e cieli azzurri e caldi che non lasciano nulla all'immagginifico dei colori spezzati dei cieli freddi
