Vatican City is the smallest country in the world at 0.44 km2 and is a unique collection of artistic and architectural masterpieces. It’s packed with more history and artwork than most cities in the world. At its centre is St Peter’s Basilica, bordered by palaces and gardens.
We waited in a very long lineup wrapping around several streets before gaining access into the Vatican Museums, including the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. After a long day of exploring Vatican City, we lived the local lifestyle by indulging in a long lunch on a paved piazza and knocking back shots of espresso at the bar, like the Romans do.
