Vatican (Via Veniero): a two bedroom apt., with sitting room, bathroom accommodating up to 4 persons

Rome's Vatican is the smallest state in the world, while St. Peter's Basilica is the largest in the world.

St. Peter, Bernini's colonnade, the Angelicum palace and the Vatican during a summer Papal audience,
held in the ample space embraced by the colonnade.


The photo to the left shows an aerial view of St. Peter's taken from a hot air baloon (montgolfier). You can single out Bernini's colonnade, the facade of St. Peter's, Michaelangelo's dome, and the Vatican Palace where the Pope lives.
