Vatican City Map

This is the Vatican. It is an entire walled complex measuring about 0.5 kmĀ² or 0.2 square miles. A lot of people assume the Vatican is just St. Peter's Basilica, which is only the most famous part of it. In the desktop or computer version of my site you can hover your mouse over the areas of the map that have a circular box on them to see that part of the Vatican. You can click on that box to see a photo of the building. This map was made by Amadeo Gigli. I identified the areas and coded the additions.

Vatican Tour Excellent Work
Our tour guide was very informative and knew the history of all the statues and art paintings and frescoes on the walls and ceilings. We are very glad we took this guided tour. We would not have known what we were looking at. Excellent work to Vatican tour and guide. Thanks!

Italy Tour Dara's Tour was Fantastic.
Dara's tour was fantastic. He made 2000 years of history much more fun than expected. I would certainly take his tour again when I next visit Rome. I learned so much and had a great time. Thanks!

Vatican Tour A Great Tour
The tour was great, after talking with others on our cruise we got the better deal as they went on the cruise sponsor tour. I do have 2 items to help with improvements. I know you may not be able to do this one and it may be out of your control, but benches would be great when listening to the information on the Sistine Chapel. The second, the guides need better microphone, when they turn their head the mic stays put and you lose volume. My party all agreed that it was a great tour. Debbie.
