Things to know about Vatican, St. Peter's and Sistine Chapel
Also known as the "Holy See", the Vatican City is one of the most fascinating and visited places on heart. Although within the city of Rome, it's an independent sovereign state: precisely, the world's smallest state, by both area and population (it has fewer than 1,000 citizens!).
The Vatican City is the cradle of the Catholic religion and it is ruled by the Pope since 1378. Despite its small size, this "walled enclave" holds several treasures of incomparable beauty and artistic value.
Beyond the spiritual side, the Vatican City is worth a visit for its extraordinary artistic and cultural treasures. The area, in fact, houses some of the most famous attractions of Rome: the Saint Peter's Basilica, the largest church in the world, famous for its dome which dominates the panorama of Rome; the Vatican Museums, the greatest museum complex in the world with over 1400 rooms, containing some of the most famous masterpieces of all time; and the Sistine Chapel, the 15th Century Pope's private chapel, where you can admire the Last Judgement by Michelangelo, one of the most famous frescoes in the world. However, in addition to those world-known sights there are also many other attractions.
While in Rome, make sure to give yourself plenty of time to ensure you get to see all the wonders of the Vatican City!
You can visit the Vatican City through a group tour or a small group tour. Alternatively, you can choose a private guided tour that will take you to discover the main attractions of the Vatican in a more informative and exclusive way. A visit to the Vatican is a prerequisite for anyone visiting Rome!
