Just west of the historical centre of Rome, on the other side of the Tiber, stands the Citta del Vaticano. The Vatican remains a spectacular destination for history enthusiasts, religious followers and art-lovers alike. The Vatican is probably per square foot the richest country in the world, and holds an astonishing collection of priceless art treasures. Check out the immense St Peter's Basilica and the fascinating Vatican museum which holds the Sistine Chapel - and make sure you have enough time to see it all. If your feet can still take it don't miss the Cola di Rienza highstreet for some of Rome's best shopping.
