Vatican City Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 40%, Vatican City is a small, sovereign state within the confines of Rome, which acts as the seat of power for the Roman Catholic Church. In reality, it is more a monument to the Catholic faith than a country in the conventional sense. However, that certainly doesn't take away from the fact that it possesses one of the world's best museums in the form of the Vatican Museum. The works of art that are found here are absolutely priceless and include the incomparable Sistine Chapel. But perhaps the best thing about the Vatican is St. Peter's Square, which acts as both one of the world's ultimate outdoor forums, as well as one of the best places to people watch in all of Europe. Just sit for an hour and you will see everything from street performers, to the faithful from all over the world in a continual movement of people across one of the world's most holy stages.
