Background Info Vatican City & Sistine Chapel Rome

Vatican City is the smallest country in the world. Encircled by a border with Italy, Vatican City is an independent city-state that covers just over 100 acres. Vatican City is governed as an absolute monarchy with the pope at its head. The Vatican mints its own euros, prints its own stamps, issues passports, and license plates, and has its own flag and anthem. Museum admission fees, stamp and souvenir sales, and contributions generate the Vatican’s revenue. Explore galleries like Raphael’s Rooms and, of course, the Sistine Chapel with its iconic frescoes by Michelangelo.
