YOTOT(MC): Castel Sant'Angelo panorama - looking westward

Here's a panorama – didn't have those for a while – stitched from 4 portrait shots. This is the view from the terrace atop Castel Sant'Angelo (right below the angel) looking west toward Saint Peter's basilica. I shot this on the day we went back to Germany, which was one of two days we had with blue sky (the other one being the day of our arrival).


We could hear the Pope holding his weekly general audience, though we did not see him from up there – not with the old eyes anyway. You can see Saint Peter's square filled with people, though. Anyway, its a great view over Rome's center from the terrace, I can really recommend going up there – even though it costs a few bucks to get into the Castel.
