    Description :

    The first Saturday of the month Peter opens its doors (to the dome) without refund and we decided to go up. Around 10 tip-hungry custodians, of which every one has his own special little notification of the altitude, are going our way, higher and higher, until we, together with a half a dozen natives find ourselves in the uppermost, moist cupola. When back down, we make a cursory tour in the church and hurry back to the pension for the soup which is cooling down.
