|Must 'Mast' Europe
|Europe is physically defined by jagged coastlines, peninsulas, islands, mountains and rivers. Since prehistoric days, people have been challenged by rugged barriers and have taken advantage of natural waterways and highways.
The present road network developed through the centuries, with rail systems expanding rapidly in the 19th century and air travel in the 20th. Over the past 30 years, Europe built most of its present modern airports, the impressive web of modern highways and a new high-speed rail system. That work goes on today, with vast investments from the European Union.

St Peter's Cathedral-Saint Peter's Cathedral, Basilica di San Pietro, was originally the Circus of Nero, where St. Peter was crucified, martyred and buried in 61 AD. In 200, an altar was built, where Peter was believed to be buried.
In 342 Constantine built the first basilica. By the 15th century, it was falling apart, and in the early 16th century Bramante began plans for a church. In 1506 Pope Julius II placed the first stone of the new church, that took over a century to build, and involved all the great architects at the time. Michelangelo finished Bramante's plans and Giacomo della Porta took over the project at Michelangelo's death in 1564 and raised the dome by the end of the century in 1593. Carlo Maderno made a few changes to the church and completed the Facade in 1614.
