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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Vatican City: Santuario Francescano del Presepe (in Greccio), Bunker Soratte (in Sant'Oreste) and Ponte Clementino (in Civita Castellana). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, appreciate the history behind Monument to Alexander VII, explore the different monuments and memorials at Vatican Necropolis, and admire the masterpieces at Vatican Museums.

For reviews, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Vatican City road trip planning tool .
