Just to look from outside

This is administrative unit of the Vatican;s complex. All tourist can only do - is to watch on it from outside.

We went to Vatican city twice. We got a tour of the Vatican museums and we saw the Pope. If you plan to see the Pope and want to make sure you get a ticket be sure to write the Vatican for the ticket months in advance. They will send you a letter that we used to get in. There... More

Extremely Fortunate and deeply honored to attend the weekly papal audience. The audience hall was very crowded but so worth it to see the pope and receive a blessing. Definitely, the highlight of our trip to Rome.

Tickets are free and can be obtained from Swiss Guard post just outside St. Peter's square, to the left as you face the Basilica. Wait your turn, ask nicely, say thank... More

The Vatican museum was spectacular. All of Vatican City was tremendous. I liked it better than the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. The Basilica and Sistine Chap was Brest taking.

For people who work for the pope. If I saw any members, they were not apparent, though I did see one cardinal making his way down a side street. Since I love the pope but not the curia, i rated "The Curia" a 3.
