Vatican, St. Peter's and Sistine Chapel: things to know and tips

The Vatican City is one of the places not to be missed during a visit to Rome. Located within the city, it is the smallest state in the world, but it is a true world heritage site, full of places of interest to be discovered.

Known throughout the world for being the craddle of the Catholic religion, the Vatican City is governed by the Pope since 1378. For centuries it has been the destination of pilgrims, and still today is often crowded, particularly during the Catholic holidays, when people from all over the world head to this important place of worship.

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, containing some of the most famous masterpieces of all time; and the Sistine Chapel, where you can admire the Last Judgement by Michelangelo, one of the most famous frescoes in the world.

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!
