The square is just amazing, the history, the significance in time.
This place is beyond words, am not a religious person but what this place signifies is beyond. The feeling calm and tranquility of an evening is very peaceful.

A must see

The big square is really a Vatican icon, even without going in, it’s already an amazing place to take a lot of photos. But I recommend, if you never come in, you better come in even though you have to line up long.

The famous square in Vatican, where over 5 million tourists visit annually, which means daily average close to 14 000 tourists a day. So consider waking up early.
Pope speaks from the balcony to listeners at the square, unfortunately he wasn't during my stay. At noon the queue to Chapel already went around the square.
In the middle is 25m tall Egyptian Obelisk, which is over 4000 years old, surrounding buildings are from 17th century.

...and take it all in. It’s breathtaking. Also, the little gift shops have some great selections, if you’re in a hurry to buy something. Stroll, & take your time with snapshots of this experience.
Tip: Being there for the sunset was ethereal. I highly recommend it.
