A visit to Rome, Italy’s capital city, is not complete without a visit to the Vatican. The official residence of the Pope and administrative centre of the Roman Catholic Church is also a beautiful architectural masterpiece based in the world’s smallest country – the Vatican City. It is both a unique and fascinating location.
Here are a few more facts about the Vatican you may not have otherwise known. They’ve been put together by the team at Avventure Bellissime – the Anglo Italian tour company who have been conducting Vatican tours for years.
It measures around 110 acres. And current estimates show the population at around 800 people.
