Stand in Holiness

Even though it's technically a country (and the world's smallest, at that!), Vatican City packs quite a wallop in terms of world culture—which makes sense, considering it's the epicenter of Roman Catholicism, and all.

Home to St. Peter’s Square and Basilica (one of—if not the—most renown and holy sites in the Catholic church), the Sistine Chapel, and a multitude of museums packed with artifacts…need we say more? It’s no wonder that millions of people come to visit the Pope’s place of residence. See some of the world's best art at the Vatican Museums, including pieces by Michelangelo, Bernini, Raphael, and Caravaggio (just to name a few), and bask in the immense amount of history at one of the most famous sites in the world.
