Owner description: The most beautiful work inside St. Peter's Cathedral is Michelangelo's famous La Pietà, considered by many to be the most moving piece of sculpture ever created.
Reviewed 15 July 2014

If you can get past the crowd to get up close to see this masterpiece by Michelangelo you will not be disappointed.

Even behind glass (which sadly happened in 1974 when a person took a hammer to the piece)it is moving and breathtaking. It is hard to fathom the creation of it. Take the time to see it and just to stand still and appreciate it while you are there.

Very crowded in the area, but it is not impossible to get to the front of the scrum and view this piece of art. It is behind glass but the way in which it is lit up enhances how it looks.

Superb. Little crowded unfortunately, the view was ok but taking pictures was like a rugby scrum. Still the visit was well worth it!
