The world's smallest state, centred on St Peter's Square, laid out by Bernini. Don't miss St Peter's Basilica, the sumptuous gardens, nor the museums and their magnificent collections collected by popes down the ages, the highpoint of which is the Sistine Chapel. Both pilgrims and art lovers will bemoan the fact that the area is overrun by crowds... perhaps unsurprising given the spiritual significance of the place.
