Visit the Vatican City and enjoy the Vatican attractions and learn the secrets with your private Vatican guide
When you visit Rome, you will notice the magnificent ancient walls that were built to separate Vatican City from Rome. Before the walls were erected, a lone church stood here built in 324AD by Emperor Constantine. The walls that you see today were started in 847 but were not completed until 855.
Today, Vatican City is home to many priceless and rare artifacts, artworks, and documents as well as being the authority of the Roman Catholic Church and the residence of His Holiness, the Pope. People from all over the world come to listen to the Pope speak and receive his blessing on Wednesday morning in Saint Peters Square and to view the many treasures that call the Vatican Home.
