The name Vatican City derives from Vatican Hill, where St. Peter's Basilica is located, right in front of St. Peter's Square. Other well-known religious and cultural landmarks are the Sistine Chapel, whose ceiling was painted by Michelangelo, and the Vatican Museums, where one can contemplate some of the world's most famous sculptures and paintings, as ancient Roman sculptures and the Renaissance frescoes in the Raphael Rooms.

Being one of the few independent states without an airport, the Vatican City is served by the same airports as Rome: Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport, the main one, and Ciampino Airport.
