Vatican & Prati

" The Vatican is a must-see for everyone. Prati is a posh neighborhood—great for shopping, and with some wonderful sights as well. "

Tessa Vrijmoed, our local from time to momo Rome

The Vatican is an autonomous state in the middle of Rome. With just 800 inhabitants, this is the least populated country in the world, but the sheer quantity of its art treasures
makes up for this lack of residents. Much of the art is on display at at the Musei Vaticani and Basilica di San Pietro (St. Peter's Basilica).

The Prati neighborhood is posh and upscale, with stately apartment blocks lining straight streets. Via Cola di Rienzo is great for shopping. You'll find the impressive Palazzo di Giustizia on Piazza Cavour. Almost adjacent lies Castel Sant’Angelo.
