What people say

Vatican City feels more like a massive museum than a proper city. As such, it is a pretty fantastic museum with more to see than one can handle in a day. Lots of paintings and sculptures by the masters of the past, and some impressive architecture as well. Happy to have been. Wouldn't go back. Luckily it is surrounded by the amazing city of Rome, so there is immediate access to great food and fun as soon as you leave.
