Wonderful art, frescos, & sculptors. Highly recommend hiring a tour guide as we did. Learned a lot more of history and about the artists too.

There are not so many places in the world like this - where one can see so many wonders. If you go to Rome - you have to go to Vatican and to explore one by one all treasures here.

Breathtaking art treasures are showcased here. From the variety of the exhibits you cannot see everythign for yourself, so definitely book a guide so that the essence is explained and you do not lose in the details.

Only see this in postcards, posters and magazines. Here, you could actually touch it. And it's just outside the gift shop.

The treasury is a little hidden but pay your € and enter a world of decadent wealth. Here you will see items gifted to the Vatican over many years by countries or private estates. Make sure you visit to digest and gasp in awe!

If you have a day to spare in The Vatican, do visit everything! Do not miss out on the Treasury. One would wonder and fantasise what is hidden in the vault. This is an absolutely fabulous place to visit and to write home about.

Save the extra few euros for a good pizza. Nothing major to see there. Was somewhat disappointing. A couple of robes, a few crosses and icons.
