Vatican City

Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Lazio  /  Vatican City

City of Seven Hills

Covering 44 hectares (110 acres) in the city center of Rome, the wall-enclosed sovereign state of Vatican City is one of the most famous religious sites worldwide, serving as the papal residence and home of the Roman Catholic church. Although it is the world's smallest state by size, the city is a hub of religious, cultural, and artistic importance. Tour the magnificent white stone buildings of St. Peter's Square, where you can attend the pope's weekly blessing, or head to the Vatican Museums to learn more about the site's history and to see one of the world's most impressive collections of art--including Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel.
