  • Get into the Vatican gardens can only be by prior reservation. The booking is made in two months. Price hits 31 €. The price includes a guided tour. Also you have headphones with receiver and a ticket to visit the Vatican museums. After payment to the official website of the email confirmation with exact time visiting gardens, surname tourist and the number of people on its reservation. Will be sent detailed instructions on further action visitors. Confirmation print and daily excursions to take with them. Duration of the tour is a two-hour gardens. I really liked Villa of Pope Pius IV, a small and picturesque, built along the lines of Roman villas. You can see numerous stone benches and sculptures, ancient towers (Winds, John, the island) and Mossy stairs, old Vatican wall, tower radio, helipad and a quiet deserted Vatican station. The most impressive of these fountains-fountain Galleon (XVII century). It is a smaller copy of the vessel-Italian Galleon, shooting water out of sixteen guns. French, Italian, English gardens are impressive and unusual with unique style. For verdure care twenty gardeners. Near each plant you can see a sign with its name here freely living animals: squirrels and rabbits, bats, foxes and hamsters, lizards and snakes. On branches of the Pack green parrots flit. Among the Green bushes you will see different buildings: the Grand Palace of the Vatican Government; the ancient Abyssinian Church of St. Stefan. Very interesting excursion.
