Walking in Rome: From Vatican City to Trastevere

Italy, Rome Guide (B): Walking in Rome: From Vatican City to Trastevere

We walked from Vatican City to Trastevere, starting early in the morning, and finishing after nightfall. However, we took plenty of breaks to enjoy the beautiful views over Rome, grab a bite or have a drink.

We left the place we were staying at early in the morning and bought some tasty pastry products on the way. Then, we got on the subway to Ottaviano, walked a bit, passing by Piazza del Risorgimento, and ending in Piazza San Pietro. Though it was before 8 in the morning, there was already a line to pass the security check for Basilica San Pietro and its Dome. However, it was short and it was in the shadow. While we were waiting for our turn and enjoying our breakfast in line, the queue got larger and larger, all the way to the entrance in the Piazza San Pietro, if you’re coming from Via della Conciliazione. All in all, I don’t think we spent more than 20 minutes waiting. Then, we went through the security check and decided to start with St. Peter’s Dome.
