Just 0.44 square kilometres in size, the world’s smallest sovereign state can’t be measured in size alone. With the Vatican’s Museums housing a legion of epic masterpieces one after the other - Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and Raphael’s Rooms, to name a few - and holding the largest Catholic church in the world, St Peter’s Basilica, all within its borders, the Vatican City makes for an awe-inspiring and ever-daunting experience for travellers. Monumental in size and style, this religious superpower is a lavish tribute to Catholicism, its epic St Peter’s square the scene for religious pilgrimages since time immemorial. Any visitor to the Vatican will agree, good things come in small packages.

    Our tips for Vatican
    • Invest in fast-track entrance. You’ll need all the time you can to discover and explore the many crevices of this religious site. Pre-booking a skip-the-line admission ticket will fast-track your entrance into this top attraction and save you from frustrating cues.
    • Cover up. When touring the city’s religious sites, covering your legs and shoulders is necessary to guarantee admission. In hot weather, be sure to have a shawl or cardigan handy for visits.
    • If the shoe fits. If you opt to take the 320-step climb up St Peter’s dome, be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, the staircases are narrow and windy.

    • An autonomous country, the Vatican City has around 600 citizens made up of cardinals, members of the Swiss Guard, clergy members and just one nun. However, most of these citizens live abroad, with clergy members serving in elected diplomatic positions around the world.
    • Popes only began to live at the Vatican in the 14th century. Before this, they opted to reside at the Lateran Palace across Rome instead.
    • At several times in the Vatican’s history, popes were forced to flee the Vatican from a secret passageway, known as the Passetto di Borgo. This passageway was first constructed in 1277, an escape route linking the Vatican with the Castel Sant’Angelo on the banks of the Tiber River.
