Rome District Vatican

Posted 13.06.2014 by Leigh

The Vatican City State is officially not a part of Rome, or even Italy, but is in its own right a sovereign-city state. With an area of just 0.44 square kilometres, the Vatican is often cited as the smallest country in the world and it is completely surrounded by the city of Rome. Having said this, if you are a tourist in Rome you will no doubt also visit the Vatican and its famous tourist attractions. Here is the home of the Catholic Church, the Pope and one of the world's largest churches, Saint Peter's Basilica, as well as the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel with its beautiful frescoes created by Michelangelo. The Vatican lies on the west bank of the River Tiber and can be reached on foot from the historic centre or by public transport (several bus routes and a nearby metro station, Ottaviano which is on the A/Red line).

Dress Code
Please do not forget that there is a strict dress code within the churches and many other places of religious significance. Shoulders and knees must be covered when entering any of these buildings, otherwise you will be turned away.
