Vatican City Travel Guide
It may be the smallest country in the world but it is packed with artistic, cultural and religious significance. Located within an already tourist powerhouse, the Vatican could easily stand on its own for everything you can see and learn here.

When to go
From April – early June and September – October you will enjoy warm weather and fewer crowds than the height of summer. Mid June – August the temps, crowds and prices are high making it uncomfortable. Beware of August as Italians get time off and many places are shut down as they head to the beaches or the mountains.
