Between 1,000 and 2,000 bikers are expected to fill St. Peter's Square for the Pope's blessing, the highlight of a four-day event in Rome to celebrate more than a century of Harley Davidson.

More than half a million Harley Davidson riders and fans from around the world are expected to head to Rome for the event taking place June 13-16.

The entire length of Via Della Conciliazione, leading from St. Peter's Basilica to the River Tiber, will be turned into a giant Harley-Davidson bike park.
