Popular historic sites such as Sistine Chapel and Basilica di San Pietro are in your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at Vatican Museums and Giardino dei Tarocchi. Get out of town with these interesting Vatican City side-trips: Monastero Di S.Benedetto (in Subiaco), Giardino di Ninfa (in Cisterna di Latina) and Ostia Antica (in Ostia Antica).
