Seems fun, strange but yes true. The Vatican City is an independent city state located in the heart of Rome, is the smallest state in Europe, both in population and expanse. Ruled by the Pope (Bishop of Rome). It is the centre of authority over the Roman Catholic Church.
The Vatican is of course one of the top hotspot place to visit and take a lot of photos when you are in Rome, specially on Wednesday and Sunday mornings when the Pope appear to the crowd that are waiting for him at the Piazza San Pietro to hear his message.
No matter where you are in the city, just find a high place that you can see and observe the top of the Basilica San Pietro church.
The Vatican City was declared independent from the rest of Italy on 11 February, 1929, with the signing of the Lateran Treaty between Pope Pius XI and Mussolini. It has a total area of 0,44 km² and inside its wall live approximately 1000 people.
Within the Vatican there are numerous interesting attractions to visit. The mains one are St. Peter’s Square (Piazza San Pietro), St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, where the Sistine chapel is located, the Vatican Garden and also you can visit the Dome of the St. Peter's Basilica that I recommend afternoon sunset time to enjoy the view up there.
Except the St. Petter's Square and St. Peter's Basilica that you have to stand in line for sometimes hour, all the attractions above you must have to pay ticket to entrance. Is not hard to find all around Vatican, promoters trying to close good deals.
