Vatican, St Peter's Basilica is the most covered church, a must see. Feel the grandeur of the square in the front, paintings, sculptures by famous artists of Italy like Michelangelo etc, wonderful marble works from floor to ceiling, domes. The... more famous Pita, only signatured sculpture of Michelangelo. There are many arts in the museum and the Sistine Chapel, known for the famous paintings of Michelangelo and others.
