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 Cupola di San Pietro. Stanze di Raffaello and Museo Etrusco-Romano Di Trevignano Romano will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Vatican City side-trips: Chiesa Santa Maria Extra Moenia (in Antrodoco), Santuario di Fonte Colombo (in Rieti) and Bocchignano Borgo Medievale (in Montopoli di Sabina). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, make a trip to St. Peter's Square, pause for some photo ops at La Pieta, and brush up on your military savvy at Museo Storico dell'Aeronautica Militare.
