When in Rome a pilgrim must visit Saint Peter's Basilica since as a Roman Catholic this is like going to the Corporate headquarters. Only the Church's retirement plan is much better.
This is a immense structure that you have to see it with your own eyes to really get the feel and look.
No camera does it justice. You have to be there.

Rome Pilgrimage - Saint Mary Major Basilica
This is the Basilica also known as Our Lady of the Snows, due to the tradition that it snowed on August 5th and left a outline on the hill for the Basillica to be built upon.
The Scala Santa are the Holy Steps that led up to the praetorium of Pontius Pilate in Jerusalem. These steps were brought over from Jerusalem during the time of Saint Helena. They are encased with wood, to protect besides Pilgrims do not want to walk or kneel on the same steps as Jesus.
The Vatican Museum has probably the most extensive collection of art and rare artifacts in the world.
The scenes we are familiar with are everywhere like Angels carrying the Holy House. I love the painting of the Pope meeting Attila the Hun outside of Rome.
