As we walked further into the Basilica, we came to the main altar...

*Fun Fact:* There are 3 altars located inside St Peters Basilica. This is the view from the main altar and below this one is located another altar and below that is another.

We were running out of time and had to choose between going down and see the altars or climb up the cupola to get a view of Vatican City\Rome from the top! We decided to go with the latter.
