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.

La Pieta is undoubtedly the most valuable statuette we've ever seen. Situated right on the left side of St. Peter's Basilica entrance, you do not have to worry that you will not see this because of crowding. The world hurries a lot, takes some pictures and then leaves, and you can get closer and see this artwork. Wonderful!

This place is as mesmerising as the whole Vatican City. The great art-work and sensuality prevails everywhere.

Seeing this work of art is no comparison to seeing all of the pictures that have been published. It is worth just the way the crowds to get up close and marvel at the beauty of the sculpture

This statue is beautiful, but when I went to St. Peter's Basilica, it was by far the most crowded part of the site and I couldn't get close enough to really get a good look. If you want a close view, I suggest going right when the basilica opens in the morning.

It’s the first thing you see when you enter the church at your right. Michelangelo took only one and a half year to turno it from a piece of marble into this beautiful and touching sculpture. It’s really worth it!
