Tours, day trips, activities & things to do in Vatican
The smallest country in the world, the Vatican is entirely encircled by Rome, Italy’s gorgeous capital city. As the seat of the Pope, the Vatican is where the heart of the Catholic Church beats and, thus, one of the most important religious sites in the world. Standing on a low hill overlooking the Eternal City, this tiny state boasts amazing architecture as well as some of the most prestigious museums in the world: the Vatican Museums. However, probably the most interesting thing about the Vatican is that you can literally travel around an entire country on foot!
Also known as the Holy See, Vatican is the smallest city-state in the world which serves as the home of the Pope and acts as the seat of the Roman Catholic Church.
