Vatican City — 5 nights

City of Seven Hills

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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica. Stanze di Raffaello and Gallery Of The Maps will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Vatican City side-trips: Chiesa Santa Maria Extra Moenia (in Antrodoco), Bocchignano Borgo Medievale (in Montopoli di Sabina) and Santuario di Fonte Colombo (in Rieti). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cupola di San Pietro, steep yourself in history at Bunker Soratte, don't miss a visit to St. Peter's Square, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Il Mitreo.
