The world’s smallest sovereign nation, Vatican City is located on a hilltop inside Italy’s capital city of Rome. Interesting right? A country set within a city! Vatican City is home to the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, and this is where the Pope resides. The tiny nation which covers only 44 hectares is packed with some of the world’s most important landmarks and considered as one of Christianity’s most holy places.

The main highlight of Vatican City is the spectacular St. Peter’s Basilica, which is the Christian world’s most sacred church. Dating back to the 4th-century AD, it is also considered to be the largest church in the world. While its grand architecture is majestic in every way possible, the interior is equally impressive and contains some of Italy’s greatest artworks. Every inch of the basilica’s elaborate interior is covered by fine mosaic and fresco works that will leave you awestruck. The basilica overlooks the massive 17th-century St Peter’s Square which is surrounded by over 200 columns topped by over 100 statues of saints. The adjacent Sistine Chapel is another wonderful piece of art and architecture, world-renowned for its stunning ceiling frescoes which were created by the legendary artist Michelangelo. Keep in mind that it is one of the world’s busiest religious sites and you need to share the chapel with thousands of visitors. The next major attraction are the Vatican Museums known for the massive collection of art that ranges from Egyptian mummies to modern paintings. Sistine Chapel is also a part of the museum.

Since there are no accommodations and dining options available in Vatican City, you need to travel back to the nearby neighbourhoods of Borgo or Prati. Even if you’re not a Christian, Vatican City is a must-visit destination for anyone traveling to Rome. Its sheer grandeur and impressive art collections will leave you in awe.

Vatican City is the world’s smallest sovereign nation.
