Yes, Vatican city is the smallest country in the world and is surrounded by Rome. There is a common misconception that Vatican is a part of Rome, which is not true. It is a headquarters for Roman Catholic church and is ruled by the Pope, who is also the king of the country. The population of this country is 1,000 people, who are working for the Pope.
I opted for a group tour to Vatican Museum and spent a day inside Vatican city. Here is what I experienced.
First of all, I was glad that I booked a group tour online in advance. Because when I reached Vatican, there was a mile long queue for getting entry tickets. Since it is the most famous destination, it attracts tourists from across the world. It stays this crowded at anytime of the year. So book your entrance tickets in advance.
