  • Incredible ornate landscapes to walk around. Can take a few hours to see everything. Brilliant for photographers too with lots of variety and excellent lighting. Not cheap too enter but a once in a lifetime experience with an ambiance that's difficult to find in any other city.
  • Absolutely unearthly experience. Lovely greenery, trees, bushes and flowers. Statues and monuments really make it feel like a paradise. The omnipresent great views of St. Peter's are just stunning. Plus you get to learn about the functionings of the state of the Vatican with your guide. Oh and you can say, that you have crossed an entire country on foot ;) :D. Great, relaxing! Recommended!!
