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.
You've added Ufficio Scavi, Roman Curia, Chiesa di Sant'Anna dei Palafrenieri, and other attractions to your itinerary. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at St. Peter's Basilica, explore the world behind art at Vatican Museums, get to know the fascinating history of Vatican City, and appreciate the history behind La Pieta.

To see reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Vatican City trip itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 16°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
