Vatican City Tours| My One Day Experience

Thelma Okoro Vatican City Tour experience

23 Feb Vatican City Tours| My One Day Experience

The beautiful Vatican City is a walled region within the city of Rome. Of my entire Europe tour, I was most excited to visit Rome and I was especially eager and excited for my Vatican City Tour. If you ever plan a Europe trip, be sure to add Italian vacation to it and certainly explore the Vatican City. You won’t be disappointed.

I had so much fun during my Vatican City Tour and even though it’s the smallest state in the world, there are so many interesting places to visit. The population of Vatican City is just under 850 however during my visit, it was very crowded with tourists from all around the world. I was drawn towards taking a Vatican City Tour mainly because, I love exploring new places and also because I am a Catholic. This place gave me more of a spiritual experience than any other.

Here’s everything I experienced in the Vatican City…

First, I strongly recommend using the private tour option, as I did.  This option saved a lot of my time, and allowed me to see more of the city.

Vatican City is most significant for its religious and cultural sites like the St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel,  and I was lucky to get a chance to explore both. My tour lasted for about three hours and every minute of my Vatican City tour was thrilling. I also stopped at the gift shop to buy a few rosaries and pendants for myself and my family.

I visited the Sistine Chapel which is the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City. Sistine Chapel is originally known as the Cappella Magna, named after Pope Sixtus IV. The Chapel attracts a lot of attention for its decorative interior and deep meaningful ancient paintings on the ceilings by Michelangelo. We were told that no cameras are allowed inside the Sistine Chapel so I complied and didn’t take my camera. Even though I noticed many people sneaking their cameras inside, I refused to do so, due to my religious beliefs.  Ever since the paintings of Michelangelo were revealed five hundred years ago, it has attracted a lot of tourists and local visitors to the Sistine Chapel. All in all, I had a peaceful and enjoyable time at the Sistine Chapel.

Since St. Basilica is only open in Jubilee years, I was only able to see its beauty from the outside.  St. Basilica was designed by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini and of course it’s recognized as their best work. St. Basilica is also ranked as one of the largest churches of the world. It is also regarded as the holiest Catholic shrine of the world. Even though I was unable to see the church from the inside, I know for sure that it must be like heaven. I felt very blessed just being present in the Vatican City and seeing all these places was one of the best experiences of my Vatican City Tour.
