Vatican City might be small in size, just over 100 acres about 1/8th the size of Central Park in New York, but it is huge when it comes to importance for the Roman Catholic Church. This is the smallest country in the world. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it is the only current monarchy in Europe. Vatican City is governed entirely by the Pope. Here in this tiny country you will find the Vatican bank, post office, phone system, a radio,station, an ATM in Latin, guards (Swiss Army), gardens, a small railroad, a national flag, a national anthem, a football team, as well as St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, and the Vatican. What you won’t find are restaurants (except for 3 self-catering cafeterias in the Vatican), hospitals, primary or secondary schools, or hotels. You can find hotels and restaurants just outside of Vatican City, but not within the city-state’s boundaries.

I must say one day is very insufficient to see all the items displayed in different museums and collected from various places over centuries. You will be overwhelmed to see the marvel of Michelangelo on the ceiling and alter of the Sistine Chapel situated within Vertican. The Creation of Adam and Last judgement -- iconic frescoes will make you speechless. You are not allowed to take photographs within Sistine Chapel. In any case, you will have plenty of opportunities to take photos. You will see St. Peter's Basilica regarded as one of the holiest Catholic shrines. It is the most prominent building in the Vatican City. Its dome is a dominant feature of the skyline of Rome. Probably the largest church in Christendom. There is tremendous rush of people to visit Vertican during this time of the year. We advise you to get skip the line ticket (though it is very expensive), otherwise it may take 2-3 hours to enter only. Keep in mind that you have to walk for 3-4 hours only to see major attractions only. Please enquire whether admission to Raphael Museum is included in the ticket or not.
