Vatican City Tourism and Holidays: Best of Vatican City

A country onto itself, Vatican City inspires sheer awe with glorious art and architecture
Vatican City may be tiny—110 acres—but the country-within-a-country houses the world's largest Catholic church (St. Peter's Basilica) and perhaps the best collection of artistic masterpieces on the planet, spanning the ancient world, the Renaissance, and beyond. And maybe only 800 people live here, but one of them's the Pope. It's a pretty good argument for quality over quantity.
