Farewell to Benedict XVI, long queues to enter St. Peter’s

The thousands of faithful who will attend the funeral of Benedict XVI in St. Peter’s Square arrived at dawn, and perhaps even earlier.
At 6.30 the queue arriving from the Porta Sant’Anna side was already very long. The area around the Vatican is all cordoned off up to the end of Via della Conciliazione and to access the gates, where there are security checkpoints, you have to make long detours. In fact, via della Conciliazione cannot be crossed even on foot. The deployment of the security forces and the vehicles of the fire brigade and the police that can be seen in the nearby squares is great.
