The Vatican City is directly linked to Christianity and it has the most sacred shrine in all Christendom, St. Peter’s Basilica. But religious or not, the Vatican has so much to offer to each visitor. With Vatican with Kids you experience one of the largest and most important art collections in the whole world inside the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Just imagine the Vatican Museums shelter around 70,000 works of art with only 20,000 on display. It paved the way for some of the greatest Italian artists like Michelangelo, Bernini, Bramante and more. Atop the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica or the Cupola is an extraordinary and unrivaled view of Rome that is not known to many.
The Vatican is a country within the city of Rome. It is the smallest country in the world but it is the only full country that is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It has its own flag and anthem, mints its own money (euros) and has its own stamps and passports too. The Vatican Swiss guards may seem too colorful for your taste but this is a team of expertly trained elite warriors ready to give their lives for the Pope. The Vatican has become an invaluable treasure trove of human genius and culture and it invites us to take part in its magnificent legacy, at least once in a lifetime.
