For those who have been to the Vatican City, you would know that this place is usually crowded the whole year round… To take a good picture, you usually have to wait and wait and wait, or keep changing angles to find a less crowded spot, or, just be be super lucky…
But, if you a person like me who doesn’t really like to fight the crowd, then this place I’m going to tell you about may just be the perfect spot for you!
Before I talk about this place, I just want to show you a few snap shot at Piazza di San Pietro (St. Peter’s Square!)
Ok, now, this place I want to tell you about is a best kept secret, and not many people know about it, so I would highly recommend you to go before this place is flooded by people. This roof top bar is hidden in a small hotel called the “Residenza Paola VI”, and it is basically right next to the Piazza. It overlooks the St. Peter’s Church in Vatican city, and is the perfect place for you to visit after a long day of sight seeing in the Vatican. The bar is furnished in classic old Italian style, and the staffs there are very nice and helpful, which makes this bar a very cozy place.

So, if you are planning to visit the Vatican, be sure to put in some time to visit this lovely rooftop bar, and see the St. Paul’s Cathedral from a different angle!
PS. The rooftop bar also accepts booking in advance for private function, this place would be great for summer parties! Contact the hotel directly for more information.
