Vatican City is the home to Pope Francis, who presides over a number of services throughout the year in both the church and surrounding square to tens of thousands of people. While we can’t guarantee your visit will include a sighting of The Pope, you will be able to visit the Sistine Chapel, his official residence; the ceiling of course is adorned with one of Michelangelo’s most iconic masterpieces. Hundreds of other important works from Renaissance artists are also located here, including sculptures and paintings from Raphael, da Vinci, Titian, and Caravaggio. There are a total of 54 galleries in the Vatican Museum, so you certainly won’t run out of things to see!
