    St Peter's Basilica

    165 reviews

    Must See. For old times sake, I recommend a modest length of skirt or pant and covered head for women with scarf . They will let you in but it is more respectful to dress the part for stepping into the Vatican's main cathedral. The Pieta is protected with plexi-glass since a vandal tried to damage it. I originally saw ...

    Vatican Museums

    119 reviews

    I was a religion major so this was Gold. I put on the headphones and much to my friend's dismay, I heard almost the entire tour of the museum. You walk through a muddled but rich history and inspiring architecture and art.

    San Giovanni in Laterano

    23 reviews

    Papal Audience

    6 reviews

    I saw Pope Benedict give an audience on a Wednesday in 2005, a few months after his election. He was white dot very far away and I don't speak Italian but it was still thrilling to see a world leader in his seat of power.

    Vatican Post Office

    2 reviews

    I like sending post cards from all the places I go, and the tiny micro-state of Vatican City has its own post office with its own stamps (and postcards). It's a small office to the left if you're standing in the square looking at the Balisica. There's a yellow post box in front. Inside they have seating and tables for ...
