"Lovely but tiring!"

Did you know that the Vatican City is actually a country in it's own right!? This is one of the interesting facts that you will discover when visiting the Vatican and wishing to mail your postcards home.

The home of the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican is absolutely enormous! I wholeheartedly recommend a pair of sensible shoes as you will do a lot of walking! Also - go off-peak! I went in May when it was meant to be fairly quiet although the tourist season was starting to hot up and I was constantly trapped different groups of foreign tourists trying to keep track of the right colour umbrella their tour guide was holding aloft.

It is also not somewhere for those wishing to spend a quick morning visit and does merit a day or more as I tried to visit the Vatican City, Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain in just one day and I was shattered! There is ever so much to see at the Vatican - don't miss the map room - it is quite something! The only drawback is that due to the large volume of visitors they restrict the number and time of your visit in the Sistine Chapel and like practically all Italian tourist locations, photography of any description is not permitted. So make the most of it!
