See the illusion of St. Peter's dome

#4 of 45 things to do in Rome
Place: Nicolo Piccolomini street in Rome, Italy

Visit in the evening the street Nicolò Piccolomini, where you can clearly see the dome of St. Peter. Here you can see the unusual optical illusion worthy of the magician or illusionist. When approaching the cathedral dome it will move away from you, and at a distance - closer. The faster you move - the more pronounced the effect.

You should definitely see this by your own eyes :)
