Borgo is bordered by Vatican City (Saint Peter's Square) to the west and the Tiber to the east. This is a little calmer area then the more hectic and crowded places in Rome farther East (except for near the Vatican or Castel Sant'Angelo).
We were able to see many calm and collected priests and nuns here walking around going about their business. You could also see tour groups forming with an air of excitement about them as they are about to enter the world’s smallest country. There weren’t...More
Very significant historical district. Our Vatican tour guide spent quite a bit of time talking about this important neighborhood. It was very nice to stroll around these holy grounds just outside of Vatican square.

This area is rather tourist friendly, can walk here on the cobbled street and actually see Roman history up close. It has very little traffic and a lot of restaurants that are not such tourist traps (although many of them do exist everywhere in Rome)....More
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as
visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
