As the installation of Pope Francis is now official, much of the media’s coverage is winding down and with it, another glimpse into the awe-inspiring treasures within the walls of the Vatican. A multitude of adjectives could not describe what fills the senses when trying to capture “being there,” but often, we rely on our cameras to remind ourselves of these often-profound moments.
Here are a few images captured March, 2011 from within and around the awesome Saint Peters Basilica, in Vatican City, Rome, Italy.

Nice photos! We visited St Peter’s four years ago and I took a picture of the Pope walking down the steps after his weekly Benediction. Now that there’s a new Pope I guess I will have to go back some day and take another picture!
Definitely! Like so many places, they warrant more than one visit. You were fortunate to get a picture of the Pope!
Ah! I see why you also liked some pictures of my tour in Rome 😀 Good job!
