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'll find plenty of places to visit near Vatican City: Borgo di Isola Farnese (in Isola Farnese), Museo dell’Agro Veientano (in Formello) and Suncave Gardens Country Cottage B&B (in Cerveteri). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to St. Peter's Basilica, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cappella Redemptoris Mater, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and admire the landmark architecture of Vatican Museums.
